KDVP debater joins Team SA in world challenge

  • YouthKDVPGold
Gabriel Brouard-Ancer, a Grade 11 pupil at King David Victory Park High School, has been selected as part of Team South Africa to represent the country at the World Schools Debating Championships in Croatia in July. This is the highest honour that a secondary school debater can achieve in South Africa, and places Gabriel within the top four or five debaters in the country.

Gabriel was selected for the World Trials Squad after his fine performance at the South African National Debating Championships in December, when he represented Gauteng.

Since January, he has participated in a rigorous and sustained programme of squad practices, which has also required of him to go through large files of research on the most obscure of possible debate topics. To get to this level, debaters have to be extraordinarily committed and willing to sacrifice other aspects of their lives.

We have been told that Gabriel “performed superbly at the trials and that the selectors were all extremely impressed with him”.

Since Grade 8, Gabriel has consistently represented King David Victory Park with dignity and skill. The school is enormously proud of him and wishes him much happiness and fulfilment as he and his fellow team members prepare for the championships.
