19 August 2015 – Today marked a day familiar to Alex debaters – the winning of the Pietermaritzburg Junior Finals. The Alex Junior A team competed against St John’s D.S.G and won narrowly to become Pietermaritzburg Champions, receiving a trophy won several times over the past decade.
The winning team consisted of seasoned debaters that poured hours of hard work and dedication into their debating careers to reach this high point. The speakers were (in order):
1st Speaker: Vela Lamula
3rd Speaker: Zipho Lamula
The Lamula twins also competed at the KZN Championships at the start of the June holidays.
Both Alex and St John’s were coached by Thishin Moodley, a former student at Alex (class of 2013) and coach for the KZN Squad.
