Gulf Debates

2018-19

The Gulf Debates took place in Jumeirah College on Friday 23 November, 2018. Three teams from our school participated in the Junior Category and one in the Senior. The one-day event had the participation of 36 schools.

After three rounds of (1impromptu & 2 Prepared) debates there was a decisive power round. The aggregate score fixes them in 4 divisions viz; Cup, Plate, Bowl and Shield. Three teams from our school entered the semi finals. Our senior team entered the finals in the Plate Division and won the second Prize. Team A in the Junior Category, lost in the semi finals. They received a trophy for the third place in the Bowl Division. Team B lost in the semi finals and Team C could make it only up to quarter final.

The day-long debate event was indeed an edifying experience for our debaters. They gave a tough time to the opponents - most of who are from the international curricula or native English speakers. Though deadbeat, after a long tiring day, all returned with spirits and heads high with the satisfaction of having done their best and learnt newer strategies of debating.
