Evening of debaters

Monday, July 18th, 2016 | Academic

Barack Obama said “When students participate in Debate, they learn to study issues in depth and form perspectives, a skill I use every day in the Senate.” Debating is more than just a battle of facts and information based on one’s opinion but rather an art form which encompasses the use of oratory, pathos, facts and logic to refine a structured argument. As debaters we are taught not to raise our voices but to improve our arguments, and in this madness of developing our speech and eloquence, gaining more confidence and improving our arguments, we find the beauty in becoming better leaders of the present and of the future. As madness breeds madness, debating breeds better leaders and this is what we are commemorating on the 18th of July 2016, the beauty behind the madness that is debate.

St George’s College will be celebrating this art form of debating through an Evening of Debaters which will be held in the Beit Hall with the theme “The Beauty Behind the Madness”. The guest speaker present will be Advocate Fadzayi Mahere and participating schools include Arundel Senior School, Chisipite Senior School, Dominican Convent Harare, Gateway High School, Hellenic Academy and St Johns College. We look forward to this evening as students gather to celebrate the beauty behind the madness that is debate.
