Qatar Debates held the QDSL National Championship on Saturday 6th April 2013. More than 20 schools participated in the Championship. Two teams consisting of students from the senior school from SSLSD also took part at the Nationals for the very first time.
Team One consisted of Salman Iza, Hephlin Robin and Jayadev Elvitigala of Year 11 and Team Two consisted of Malinda Jayalath, Abdul Rahman of Year 11 and Asna Nizam of Year 9.
The challenge was refreshing and provided a learning platform. The school’s debaters received guidance from Ms. Tasneem of Qatar Debates as well as University debaters. While their scores as a team and individuals are commendable, they look forward to obtaining laurels at the next Championship.
