SINGAPORE SECONDARY SCHOOLS DEBATE CHAMPIONSHIP 2017

Untitled-2.jpg

The WGS Debate Team participated in the annual Singapore Secondary Schools Debate Championship (SSSDC) 2017 in Semester 1. Held over a span of 4 months, this competition gives students the opportunity spar with debate teams from other schools in Singapore.

In the three Preliminary Rounds, our SSSDC team worked hard to develop their arguments and identify the likely points which may be raised by the opposing team. Members who were not in the SSSDC team helped in the preparation too, by simulating an opposing team in mock spars during CCA sessions.

It is never an easy task to deliver relevant and impactful speeches, while remaining composed during a debate. Nonetheless, our SSSDC team managed to do well in all three Preliminary Rounds, and were advanced to the Quarter Finals! Additionally, one of the team members, Yeo Jia Le, was ranked among the Top 20 Best Speakers in the Division!
