Growing Up Debating

by Darion Hotan & Tan Teck Wei

It was not too long ago when both of us were first-time entrants to the debating fraternity, green and keen for the thrills before us, yet a lot has changed since then. This year, as we move from debating for our secondary schools into the college circuit, a similarly new experience awaits us. In our first few months, our debating has changed tremendously, but the passion and intensity that originally fuelled us remains the same.

Sport – Are its ideals dead?

RohiniSingh

By Rohini Shashikiran Singh

About this Pamphlet

In a world where the interaction between so many influencing forces has increased at an alarming rate, it has become difficult to find any one entity which remains pristine and untouched. This is especially true in the sports arena where it often seems that the original ideals of sport have been sacrificed at the altar of commercialism, politicisation and professionalism. Some people feel that these new gods are benign ones that elevate the principles of sport; others feel that sport is better off without them. This pamphlet aims to examine whether sport as we know it today is a travesty  of its original goals or whether it truly is what the founder of the modern Olympic games hoped it would be: “A festival of human unity, celebrating the triumph of human endeavour.”
