Eagles clinch the senior debate mayors cup

The Eagles Nest senior debate team emerged victorious in a heated showdown against Stanford Lake College, securing the prestigious Mayor’s Cup. Among more than 25 participating schools in the annual Polokwane Executive Mayor’s Cup, several were eliminated in the preliminary rounds. Despite formidable competition from schools like Capricorn High School, Veritas, and PEPPS, the Eagles persevered, ultimately defeating Stanford Lake College in the finals. Ruth Phiri’s eloquence earned her the title of best speaker in both the semi-finals and the finals.
Reflecting on their journey, Dr. Mac van den Berg, the executive principal, remarked, “Since our debut in the Mayor’s Cup in 2010, our senior team has consistently excelled, securing the trophy in 8 consecutive years from 2011 to 2016, and now in 2022-2023.” Expressing gratitude for the victory, Dr. van den Berg extended appreciation to God, the debate coach, teachers, and the debaters for their outstanding dedication and effort.
