Postponement of Youth Debate Open 2013

The Youth Debate Open 2013 was scheduled to run on 22 and 23 June 2013 at Anglo-Chinese Junior College.

However, the Pollutant Standards Index (PSI) has reached “Hazardous” levels these past few days. As the health and wellbeing of everyone involved in the tournament is our utmost priority, we have decided to postpone the competition to a later date.

The competition will be rescheduled once the PSI reaches a consistently “Moderate” or “Good” level. We will keep all schools and teams involved in the tournament updated on this.

Debate Association (Singapore) is deeply sorry for the inconvenience caused and seeks your understanding on the matter. Please contact us directly at outreach@debates.org.sg if you have any further queries.

June Camp 2013

Camp Ignis and Camp Excelsior took place from 10 - 11 June 2013 and 12 - 13 June 2013 respectively at Methodist Girls' School (Primary).

The camp saw a total of nearly 90 students from 13 different schools in attendance and these budding debaters had the opportunity to learn, debate and grow amongst like-minded peers.

Camp Ignis was an induction camp targeted at those uninitiated to debate or those with foundational knowledge. Whereas Camp Excelsior was a more advanced camp that targeted more seasoned debaters.

The campers had a fruitful time of fellowship and learning over an exchange of witty banter, laughs and fun activities that were designed to help them become more eloquent, confident and effective speakers. 

A special thanks to Methodist Girls’ School (Primary) for generously hosting the camp for the 4 days and to all facilitators and individuals who helped make the camp a success!!
