We are very pleased to announce that the winner of the 2nd iMlango Junior Debaters Contest, which aims to help improve literacy, communication and research skills, general knowledge, as well as teamwork and pupil self-esteem, is Starlight group from Kavuko primary school.
Starlight and the seven other remaining groups that made it to the third and final round of the contest were set the motion:
“Modern communication has a positive impact on education. Do you agree or disagree with this statement? Use specific reasons and details to support your answer.”
Groups consisting of five team members worked on their responses before submitting them digitally via the iMlango learning platform.
The top three groups in the third and final round of the contest scored as follows:
Starlight, Kavuko primary school: 93%
Ronaldo, Kwakiketi primary school: 92%
Chipkeezy, Kavuko primary school: 90%
iMlango presented the top three groups with their prizes at ceremonies at Kavuko primary and Kwakiketi primary, which are both located in Mukaa sub-county in Makueni County.
iMlango’s James Montanana led the ceremony at Kavuko primary, where 33 teachers and the school’s pupils roared as the winners and third-placed group were announced.
Each pupil from Starlight and Chipkeezy received a new school bag, stationery and books. In addition to this, the school was awarded with three brand new desktop computers, and teachers were issued with iMlango t-shirts, lanyards and pens for their part in championing the contest.
The second ceremony took place at Kwakiketi primary school, where the Ronaldo group were presented with their prizes in front of their classmates.
