Pretoria 2019

ABOUT

SANSDC 2019 was held on the beautiful Hatfield campus of the University of Pretoria.

We were all welcomed on the first day with an inspiring performance by UP’s Ovuwa Choir at the Opening Ceremony. Learners were also treated with a visit to Javett Art Centre.

The debaters were then engaged in eight vigorous preliminary rounds of debating. Our incredible Chief Adjudication Panel led by Christopher Hojem and Emma Buckland presented our debaters with thought-provoking motions. Our eventual senior champions hailed from the Western Cape and Junior winners from Kwa-Zulu Natal. SANSDC 2020 was in a class of its own.

The closing ceremony was hosted by a Miss SA Top 5 finalist and we listened to beautiful musical performances by Asanda and Zinhle.

We would like to thank our fabulous organising committee (Rimbilana Shingange, Bettina Buabeng-Baidoo, Bradley Wesi, Gregory O’Connor, Lebohang Sempe and Kagiso Segage) for organising a world-class tournament.

Online 2020

ABOUT

Due to the CoronaVirus Pandemic, the South African National Schools’ Debating Championship was held online. The Championship was held from the 15th-20th of December on the Discord Platform. Though the competition was not without its challenges and we all dearly missed the vigour of being able to meet in person, for the most part, it was an enjoyable and educational experience for all involved. There were many other firsts for the championships besides its online platform. The Free State Province took part in their first final narrowly losing out to a team from South Korea, making the South Korean team the first international team to win a National final. This year was also the first time we had two international teams competing in the finals. Kenya took part in the Senior plate-final losing out to a team from the Gauteng province. It was also the first time we had all of the top 10 junior speakers from one province, Gauteng. The eventual winners of the senior and junior championships were from the Gauteng province. Congratulations to all speakers who took part in the final. We were once again inspired by the level of intellect, compassion and talent participants displayed. It was a difficult challenge moving to an online platform, and our learners took this in great stride and made Nationals 2020 a phenomenal experience. 

Without the hard work of our volunteers none of this would have been possible. Thank you to our Chief Adjudicators, Uheli, Shannon and Amaar for their invigorating motions which challenged  us. Our Tab masters, Bradley and Lame, were essential to the success of this competition. Finally our immense gratitude to the organising committee, Lebo, Bettina and Rimbi for taking the vision of an online tournament forward.
