It is expected that future PDl tournaments will attract a slightly higher attendance, because many schools in the area are now beginning to seek out regular tournaments and practice for their debaters.
4th Limpopo Provincial Debating Tournament
The tournament took place on the 12th September 2015 and had three rounds. Selection of speakers for the provincial team was done by a single selection panel that consisted of adjudicators and teachers. Sixteen learners were selected to represent the province at the national tournament: 2 junior teams and 2 senior teams.
|Grade 8-9||10||44||Hoerskool Noorderland|
|Grade 10-12||14||60||Hoerskool Louis Trichardt|
Provincial Speakers Training Programme
The training programme lasted 10 weeks with practice starting 09h00 and ending at 14h00. The learners were coached by 7 coaches which reduced the burden of coaching and supervision. One notable difference was the presence of the former SA coach, Brandon Almeida, at all practice sessions. His input was greatly appreciated.
The Exhibition Debate Fundraiser took place on the 28th November 2015. All four teams presented a debate for parents and friends to watch. The fundraiser raised R880.00. Positive feedback was received from all parents and they also appreciated the efforts made in developing and refining their children’s speaking skills.
National Schools Debating Championships
This year’s tournament was hosted at Treverton College in Mooiriver, Kwa-Zulu Natal from Saturday, 12th December – Thursday 17th December. Our best junior team made it to the semi-finals of the junior division thus maintaining our ranking in the Top 8 teams of the tournament. Our senior teams did not fare as well despite a record performance on the first day of the tournament. Our adjudicators performed well too. I was a panellist for the senior semi-final and Thabo Phala was a panellist for the 2nd division finals. It was a good tournament overall.
