The Weekend Academy was a World Schools’ Debating Board, South African Schools’ Debating Board and African Schools’ Debating Council initiative aimed at providing practice for, primarily, Macau Online WSDC 2021 teams, and secondly, development teams, that facilitates access to robust, useful feedback and adjudication. This ran from the 3-4 July 2021.
In addition, The Weekend Academy hosted a Coaches Q&A Workshop on the 26th of June 2021 aimed at providing coaches with an opportunity to share knowledge and address issues in the coaching space.
The WSDC Team competed in the Christ University Parliamentary Debate (CUPD) Tournament which followed the Asian Parliamentary Format over the weekend of the 19th of February.
Our very own team which comprised of Faye Crawford, Eugene Cloete and Joshua Hendricks made it to the Novice Final and unanimously won the Novice Final with Eugene ranking 9th Best Speaker at the Tournament!
A massive shout out to the SA Head Coaches and the rest of the speakers for this amazing achievement! We are extremely proud of you!
