“I am pleased with the performance of Oyewunmi and Anjolaoluwa. During the debate, they stated their points eloquently and connected the points well. I believe the school’s approach in encouraging students to take charge of their learning and developing their public speaking skills through presentations in class and at the assembly contributed to their success,” Adebimpe said.

According to Adebimpe, the journey to becoming the regional winners started for the students in term 1, when they won the debate on the topic: ‘Parents Should Determine the Career Choice for their Children’.

Adebimpe added that the win at the regional level qualifies them for the final competition at the national level scheduled to take place in term 3.
