Regarding the competition, Dr Shivananda CS, principal of DPS STS School Dhaka said the art of oratory and generating logical counter arguments require higher degree of reasoning skills.

“Our students from DPS STS debate club have made me proud with their organising skills, as they have presented us with such a marvelous event.
