National Inter-Secondary School Debate

The platform for training good public speakers, practicing grace under pressure.

Through our annual national inter-secondary school debate/oratory contest, we bring together secondary school students for one of the finest intellectual discourse among young people enrolled in both private and secondary schools.
We do this with the knowledge that the importance of debate cannot be overemphasized, they include:
⦁ Debates provide practice in developing sound and logical arguments.
⦁ It gives students an opportunity to practice speaking in front of an audience and thinking on their feet.
⦁ The experience shows initiative and leadership on university application.
⦁ The research debaters do expands their mind and increases their understanding of multiple sides of important issues.
⦁ Students hone their research skills in preparing for debates.

The platform for training good public speakers, practicing grace under pressure, and creating critical thinkers for our continent.
