Four Eastern Cape pupils are among the eight that will represent South Africa in the International Moot Court Competition that starts on Saturday in the Hague, Netherlands.

The debate competition to select South Africa’s top debaters was held across the country.

The learners from the Eastern Cape who were selected are from the Holy Cross High School in Mthatha and Beaconhurst in East London.

“On the 21st it will be the orientation of the 45 countries. So South Africa is amongst those 45 countries. On the 22nd, we are starting the first argument that is the first round. If our country has succeeded they will go to the second round,” explains provincial Education Department  coordinator, Funeka Jwaai.
