According to the Academic Exco of KKTM JAKMAS, Harun Pasi, the programme was the best medium for debaters to gain knowledge and experience in strengthening their respective school debating team.
Meanwhile, for Principal of KKTM, Dr. Mohamad Nizam Nazarudin, such programme should be continued in the future as it could be beneficial to secondary school students who were active in public speaking or oratory activities, and help to improve the participants’ leadership skills.
The three-day programme included talks, team strategy, group activities, and watching of videos on debating. – (fl)
