The students, who had to both oppose and propose each motion were given a list of potential  subjects such as “All people should only eat plant food” and ” Conservation should be taught to children rather than adults as they are the future” and were only told on the day which topics they were debating. After a very close and fiercely competed fight Kasiisi retained the cup for a second year. 37% of students said that they had learned about conservation, 23% said that their confidence improved, 23% that their English was better and 17 % reported better debate skills.
