Dear Educators and Limpopo Debaters

I’d like to first thank everyone for coming through and participating in the tournament and congratulations to everyone and especially those that will be representing Limpopo at NSDC 2012.  

The criterion for choosing the team was as follows: 
Good speaker
Problem solver 
Good behavior
Content giver and conveyor 
Speaker scores

Being ranked in the top 10 doesn’t necessarily qualify you to be on the team, balancing the teams in terms of who is good at which speaking role also contributed to the selection process.

Mpho Dagada (Hoërskool Louis Trichardt), 74.50
Russel Jhamba (Hoërskool Louis Trichardt), 74.50
