RedDot Education Debate Programmes 2022

With our successful debate competition in 2021, Knovo and RedDot Education are proud to launch our new debate workshops for 2022!

Kids start by having fun and learning to speak confidently from a young age. As they grow older, students learn to elaborate on arguments, understand different points of view and express their opinions clearly.

These invaluable skills will assist and benefit them greatly throughout their school and adult working life.

Trainer: Mr Njuguna Macharia of Kenya

This class aims to teach primary school students to succinctly express themselves clearly to those around them through using persuasive arguments. It aims to help students refine and hone their ideas to be more acceptable to those listening. In a world where students are taught to collect information passively, critical thinking is lacking in our generation today.

This series of customized classes focuses on growing the students critical thinking skills. Each class trains students to examine the topics they’ve been assigned on, through honing their thoughts, discarding concepts and theories that don’t make sense and adopt ones that do.

Njuguna Macharia is a law graduate of Strathmore University and has been part of the Chief Adjudication Panel (CAP) of more than 30 international tournaments, including the finals at the Macau Online WSDC 2021, the Oxford Pre-WSDC 2021, and many other championships. He is a much sought-after Independent Adjudicator and has adjudicated in more than 50 online debate tournaments in 2021 alone.

RedDot Education Attendees Testimonals

I really liked the event. My son enjoyed it a lot too he learn a lot and he can’t wait for the next event. The opportunity was really a special one where u can’t even get it at school and I found that the discussions as a whole was very wonderful as my son got to get with other debaters and gain insights about topics like our current education and what are the pros and cons about it. Over all this was the best debate session my son had ever been to.

My P5 boy likes Sunday Spars as it is so different from school. He learnt to organise his thoughts within a short time and present his argument fluidly. The coaches are very interesting and friendly that it makes debating so fun and engaging. Thumbs up!
