In light of the continuing situation with COVID-19 the Debating SA Board has resolved to cancel the 2020 Debating Season as well as any training events that had been scheduled for 2020.

We know this will be a sad and disappointing announcement for students who were looking forward to the year’s competition but our concern first and foremost must be the safety and well being of all participants, supporters and spectators.

If the situation improves later in the year, we will advise of any other options such as a reduced season length, otherwise we hope to be able to offer another fantastic competition in 2021. Until then, please stay safe and look after yourselves.
