Public Speaking


4 October 2021
During the first weekend of the September holidays, four of our public speakers/debaters participated in the National Individual Debating and Public Speaking Championships (NIDPSC) hosted by St Stithians and Clifton. This is an annual competition where the Top Ten speakers represent South Africa at the World Individual Debating and Public Speaking Championships (WIDPSC) the following April wherever it is hosted. All four of our boys were ranked in the Top 10, with Nimba Mahlati coming second overall, Erik Todd fourth, Ben Anderson fifth and Michael Beaumont sixth, an amazing achievement for our boys and our school. The world championship is hosted in Kaunas, Lithuania, next year and, hopefully, it will be an in-person tournament. Congratulations to these four speakers!
