Dominica Debate Team to Vie for Second Regional Title


Last year the Dominica State College (DSC) emerged winner of the first debate competition among Community Colleges in the Windward Islands. Five DSC students participated in the debating competition at the Sir Arthur Lewis Community College in St Lucia and won big time!

The second edition of the competition is being held in St Vincent and the Grenadines on March 02 (today) and 03, 2018. The students are Tarrie Anselm, Jair Pendenque, Kareen George and Ashfred Morris. The team is being supported by Sagicor Life Inc. and its Agency Manager, Brenton Hilaire, said the company is pleased to be part of the venture.

“On behalf of Sagicor Life Inc. our team in Dominica is pleased to support the representatives of the Literary and Debating Society of the Dominica State College,” he said. “We view this as an investment in our community and also and investment in the future of Dominica.”

Lecturer at the Dominica State College Trudy Christian said that despite the challenges the team was able to receive adequate preparation for the competition.

“It is very demanding to prepare the way that they had to prepare although the preparations they had to make have been difficult of course due to our current situation in Dominica lack of electricity and lack of a constant or reliable supply of internet service but they have put in significant work,” said Christian (source: Dominica News Online).

The competition starts at 9:00 AM on March 2 and will be live-streamed at this link. The team needs your support and urges you to share this post with your social networks!

Best of Luck!
