Greetings from The Great Debaters Desk!
It is an honor to report to you all that the Gallant Great Debaters of Kabojja represented the school in the World Scholar's Cup – Global Round in Athens, Greece from July 18 – 23, 2017; where they participated, excelled and qualified for the final round in November, 2017 – The Tournament of Champions at the Yale University in the U.S!
Six students: Betty Gisilla, Keith Mukunya, Matilda Mwebeiha, Beza Gisilla, Lauryn Mwebesa and Trevor Mwebesa; along with their Debate Coach – Ms Marie, embarked on a 10-day trip to Greece to compete with other debaters from all over the world.
We spent a night in UAE and had a 2-hour tour around Dubai, where we visited some of the most eye-catching and breath-taking buildings and landmarks. Upon reaching Athens, the team spent two sleepless nights reading, researching and mock-debating, and by the time they faced their opponents, they were ready and simply sailed through to victory. The Debate team returned home with various honorary gold and silver medals; but above all, scooped certificates and qualified for the Tournament of Champions.
