Written by DA(S) Admin on .

Debate Association (Singapore) and Speak! Ventures Pte Ltd organised the Speak! Ventures Debate Championships held on 24 and 25 January 2015. The tournament was hosted by Pioneer Junior College.

In our second year, we saw 32 schools from across Singapore compete in preparation for the Singapore Secondary Schools Debating Championships that will be happening in less than two weeks time.

Teams from across all three divisions of the SSSDC, debated in SVDC on motions surrounding issues such as patents for green technology, the dominant narratives in children's education, and on the impact of the commodification of indigenous cultures.

Nanyang Girls' High School emerged the champions of the Gold Division, while Ngee Ann Secondary School clinched the championship trophy for the Silver Division.
