Debating Society

Debating Society


2018 proved to be a highly successful year for Fairmont’s Debate society.

They kicked off the year participating in the Rotary Debating Competition, with both the junior and senior teams winning their respective debates. Although the senior team was, unfortunately, eliminated sometime towards the middle of the tournament, the junior team continued to flourish, making it through to the quarter finals. They left the competition with only two losses out of the seven debates in which they competed.

The junior team was presented with another opportunity when they were invited to participate in the Provincial Trials against other top performers in the Western Cape debating circuit.

We are proud to report that one of the members of the junior team, Lao Molele, was selected to represent the Western Cape Province at the national championships hosted in Gauteng, in December, 2018.

2018 was definitely a remarkable year for the Debating Society and we have no doubt that our society will continue to grow from strength to strength.
