Defending Champions T. I. Amass, Kumasi were given a real scare by Konongo Odumasi in the ongoing Luv Fm/ARSRC High School Debate. Amass managed to win by a one point margin on the score cards of three judges in what was considered one of the toughest contests so far.
The audience sat on the edge with baited breadth as they waited for the final score after a very exciting debate by the two schools. Both Amass and KOSS were at their very best as they exhibited all the elements of a good debate contest.
But in the end, Amass phobia proved their mettle as defending champions by winning with a point margin.
The two schools debated on the motion “Passage of the Vigilatism Law, Enough Grounds for violence-free elections”
In the second contest of the day, last year finalist Opoku Ware School were at their very best as they parried the threat posed by Anglican Senior High School, Kumasi in another great contest.
The two school schools debated on the motion “Churches must be regulated” as they advanced cogent points to support their claim. Opoku Ware spoke against the motion while KASS were in favour of the motion.
T. I. Amass, Kumasi will now battle Tepa SHS in the quarter finals of the competition while Opoku Ware will battle Yaa Asantewaa Girls in the other quarter finals scheduled for next week Friday.
The High School Debate is a collaboration between the Ashanti Regional Students Representative Council and Luv 99.5 fm.
