READY, STUDY and DEBATE!

CEREVITA®, our proudly Zimbabwean breakfast cereal has done it again by hosting the National Schools Debate.

The Zimbabwe National Schools Debate has been on schools’ calendar since 1995, and now over 800 schools from all the 10 provinces actively participate. Topics of debate cover social, economic and technology with debaters showcasing a remarkable level of knowledge, research, composition and debating skills.

Addressing guests at the event, CEREVITA®, Brand Manager Sizile Nyathi Dhlamini said Nestlè’s initiative to promote the national schools debate is part of its commitment in supporting education and cognitive development in Zimbabwe.

“The philanthropic nature of the food giant has made it win the hearts and minds of school children and teachers throughout the 10 provinces of Zimbabwe. We shall only go from strength to strength with this sponsorship,” said the National Coordinator, Mr. Tawona Zvongouya of Prince Edward High School commending Nestlé.

The debate has two leagues, the junior league represented by Form 3 and 4 pupils and the senior league represented by Form 5 and 6 pupils. However, Form 1 and Form 2 pupils are encouraged to participate in debates at school level to prepare them for future Nestlè CEREVITA® National Competition.
