Debating GDL


Over the weekend, our junior debating teams went head to head in the semi-final round with the contentious debate: This House Would Legalise the Sale of Rhino Horn, ultimately sending Brescia Green through to the finals where they debated whether or not individuals with business interests should hold executive government positions. Meagan was awarded best speaker in this debate.

Our senior's semi-final round was unanimously called with a 5-nil win and slated as the one of the best debates the adjudicator had ever chaired; the topic for the debate was: This House Supports Slum Tourism, with the info slide: slum tourism is when tourists visit an impoverished country to see how the impoverished live and experience life. The seniors final topic: This House Believes that Government Should Heavily Subsidise Internet Data, resulted in a highly contentious debate, of which the outcome was deliberated for almost 40 min.

We are very proud of our girls and the efforts they have dedicated to debating, these achievements speak for themselves and exemplify the dedication and effort our girls have committed to this sport.

Furthermore, both Mutsa and Minana were ranked 9th in Gauteng on their Junior Speaker scores, and Genevieve was ranked 3rd over-all. These are amazing achievements for the girls.

In response to the girls' back to back achievements in Both SACEE and GDL Debating the coaches had this to say:

"We want to send a strong message of congratulations to everyone who did SACEE and GDL this year. You've done more than what any coach could have asked for. You won 2/4 trophies. You placed 5 speakers in Top Ten. You placed 4/4 teams into Gauteng Provincial Debating. That's an opportunity for 20 girls to be selected to speak on the Gauteng Provincial Team."

We are beyond proud of our girls. Thank you for all your hard work.
