SUMATIN Collaborates with EmStret School Challenge
For more than 10 years running, the EmStret School Challenge has taken place in multiple provinces around the country, and has been cultivating confident and sharp thinking young people. It has also hosted and facilitated the National Debate Championship, Melanesian Debate Championships and in 2018 participated in the World Championships in Croatia.
Barata is pleased to announce the collaboration of the EmStret Debate Challenge with our SUMATIN debate competitions for Lae Schools, effective this year 2019.
This collaboration now allows us to become the debate platform for Lae, allowing us facilitate our debates during the SUMATIN week of programs and send through the winning Lae team to participate in the National Debate Championships in Port Moresby this September. It also allows for telecast on NBC TV through EmStret.
Barata would like to extend our appreciation to Miss Vani Nades of EmStret Holdings and the School Challenge Team for the opportunity to provide more opportunities to our students in broadening their debating skills and sharpening confidence.
The SUMATIN debates will run from the 11th to 14th of June 2019, at the Trinder Hall, Lae Secondary School.
