Author: GRENLEC Blogger/Tuesday, October 9, 2018/Categories: General, Debate

Tuesday, 9 October 2018:  16 of the nation’s secondary schools are preparing for round two of the Grenlec Debates on 11 and 12 October. 15 of the 22 schools that participated in the preliminaries earned a place in the Round of Sixteen. Presentation Brother’s College, the defending champion, automatically advanced to the Round of Sixteen because an odd number of schools registered for the 2018 season.  

The debaters will explore the theme “Grenadian and Caribbean History” in the upcoming round. Following is the Round of 16 schedule.
