Keeping in line with our commitment to providing young debaters with a platform to develop their skills, Debate Association (Singapore) is proud to announce that registration for Primary School Debate Open 2021 is now open once again! PSDO is an important platform for Primary 4 to 6 students to hone their critical thinking skills while debating against their peers from other schools.
At PSDO this year, teams can look forward to challenging new elements such as impromptu or short-preparation debates where teams will prepare independently without further assistance from their teachers or coaches. Normally reserved for higher levels of debating, this exciting format at the Primary School level seeks to expose budding debaters to more challenging scenarios where they can further develop the ability to think on their feet and work as a team under pressure.
To facilitate this tournament, DA(S) has assembled a team of qualified core adjudicators:
