SSLP WCIB Debate Mate Competition
We are pleased to announce that we have found a venue and can confirm the date for our Debating Competition.
Wednesday 4th May 9:45 - 3:30pm
This will be a competition for novice debaters - those who have never competed before. Each team will be made up of six students, they can be mixed year groups. There will be an entry fee of £150 per team. We can accommodate a total of 10 teams so currently will restrict entry to one team per school. The competition is open to all SSLP schools.
There will be three rounds of debating for all the teams and then a final for the two highest scoring teams. All the debates will be run using the Debate Mate scoring method. You are welcome to bring other students to watch the final (14:15 - 15:30) but please let know in advance.
Please let know by Friday 25th March if you would like to enter a team. I will need the names of the accompanying teacher(s) and the students when we return after Easter. A briefing pack, including the scoring matrix, will be shared with the teachers in advance.
Attendees will need to bring their own packed lunch and a water bottle. Some light refreshments may also be available throughout the day.
The Worshipful Company of International Bankers are kindly covering the Debate Mate standard fee of £1,000 for running this competition. Dulwich College will invoice each school for the £150 entry fee on behalf of the SSLP, these will then collectively be paid to Debate Mate.
Please let Katie know if you would like your school to participate but there are barriers, and we will do our best to find a solution together.
