It was a challenging yet learning experience for all, as debating requires language and critical thinking skills, argumentative skills and students to be able to think on the spot. Furthermore, the debate allowed the students to be independent, competitive yet able to work with their peers  to achieve success as a team.  PMK hopes to take part in more debate workshops and competitions to enhance not only communicative skills but also develop future leadership.
