INTER-SCHOOLS DEBATE COMPETITION

INTER-SCHOOLS DEBATE COMPETITION

In fulfilling our mandate, DOHAL commemorate the Annual National Children’s Day celebrations with inter-schools debate amidst other activities. This intellectual debating programme which started in the year 2011 is aimed at creating opportunity for young people to acquire beneficial knowledge on health-related issues and build up their thinking and creative capacity. It is to help them interact with their peers constructively as they exchange correct information. The primary purpose is to increase their knowledge and speak out their mind on salient health issues as reflected in the topics of the debate over the years. It is based on the philosophy that knowledge prevents death. Participating schools for the debate are usually selected from public and private secondary school across Oyo State. The debate usually holds in Ibadan, the capital of Oyo State, the headquarters base of DOHAL.

Cash awards are given to the first three top-rated debating schools every year to motivate them to further pursue academic excellence.
