Team Limpopo participated in the South African Schools National Debating Championships hosted at Sol Plaatje University in December 2023. The team was composed of learners from Capricorn, Mopani, and Waterberg Districts circuits. 

The team of seniors consisted of 4 learners, who made it to the highest division semifinals, and  another team of 4 juniors made it to the highest division and obtained second position. Team Gauteng took first position. 

The debate focused on whether sports diplomacy can be allowed or not. 

The delegation was coordinated by the South African Council for English Education (SACEE) Polokwane Branch, led by Tlou Mashitisho. Learners have been attending the national championship since 2010 and have not missed a single year since.

Tlou would like to also congratulate the class of 2023 National Senior Certificate, who made it and our Limpopo province for good improvement in matric results.
