Bishops Debating

9 July 2019

After winning the Western Cape Provincial Category of the ABSA debating challenge, four of Bishops' best debaters traveled to Johannesburg to compete for the national title. Topics of the debates included the granting of basic human rights to strong Artificial Intelligence and corporations' focus on the creation of green jobs vs. their recruitment of graduate interns. After 5 rounds of debates, Robert Dugmore, Luke Rissik, Jonty Wright, Rohan Naidoo and Jonathan Mopp qualified for the semi-final. We thank these learners for their time and effort and congratulate them on their professional conduct and commitment to debating. A special congratulations to Rohan Naidoo, who has been selected to compete in an international debating tournament in China this October.
