North West

Debating in the North West Province does not have any currently operating tournaments or structures recognised by the SASDB.

However, a group of teachers have been training high school speakers in the hopes of them competing at the South African National Schools Debating Championships in December.

If you would like to assist this initiative, please contact:

    1. Hi Nazmira,

      You’ll find plenty of documents with the information you need in our downloads section on this website. You can also contact Michelle Groenewald (, maybe she can provide you with more information about debating in North West.

      Keep a lookout for the New Provinces Development Project, which will be starting soon – we’ll be running workshops for students and teachers on how to set up debating teams etc. There’s more information on it on this website, under “About Us”. We’ll be sure to contact you when we start scheduling the training days!

      If you need anything more than that, please let me know.

      Devi (Vice President)
