Polytechnic debate contest
THE Joint Polytechnic Debate to be held next month will see keen competition as members of the Chinese and English debating teams from the two local polytechnics gear up for the contest.
The debate, jointly organised by the debating societies of the two polytechnics, is divided into Chinese and English sections.
Aimed at stimulating the social awareness of secondary and tertiary students, the debates will focus on current issues.
The motions will be announced a week before the competition.
The Chinese debate contest will be held at the Wei Hing Theatre of the City Polytechnic of Hongkong on April 2 while the English one will be at the Studio Theatre of the Hongkong Polytechnic on April 3.
The debate is open to all secondary and tertiary students. Members of the public are also welcomed.
