EXTENDING its holistic educational experience beyond the classroom, the Community College of Qatar (CCQ), Qatar's fastest-growing educational institution, recently hosted QatarDebate's 1st Qatar Universities Debate League (QUDL) in Arabic for the 2018-2019 season on its C-Ring campus.
The competition witnessed the participation of students representing CCQ, Qatar University, Hamad Bin Khalifa University and Qatar Foundation.
The tournament kicked off at 9:30am and went for three debate rounds where all participating teams had a chance to compete, before crowning the league winners. The rounds discussed three thought-provoking topics 'The Council will prevent first world countries from attracting competencies in third world countries'; 'The Council will not take punitive action against soldiers for war crimes as long as they received orders'; and 'The Council will seize vacant lots in residential or commercial areas'.
Students representing CCQ in the tournament were Fatma Abdul Shaheed, Mariam Allangawi, Aljazi al-Korbi, Meera Alishaq, Abdullah Abdul Shaheed, Abdullah al-Dari, Abdulaziz al-Ansari and Hasan Hmoud.
Commenting on the occasion, CCQ's Dean Dr Abdallah Hazaimeh said:"At CCQ, we are honoured to be hosting QUDL for the first time in collaboration with QatarDebate Center, and we firmly stand behind the message this event aims to spread as well as the Centre's relentless pursuit of preparing and nurturing the future leaders of the nation. There are some important life lessons we believe the participating teams will walk away with today, complemented by three key skills this debate tournament highlights self-confidence, leadership and team spirit. We can personally identify with these skills at CCQ, as without them we couldn't have achieved the remarkable growth we enjoy today since the College first opened its doors in 2010. This is why we are always keen on having meaningful interaction with our future leaders, and we wish the best to all participating teams."
Echoing the Dean's remarks, Amnah al Azzah, CCQ Debate Club Chair, said:"Our Club unites students from various backgrounds and academic disciplines, who bring a broad range of perspectives to the table. The club inspires members to think outside the box and helps take their intellectual and interpersonal skills to the next level."
QatarDebate Centre, a member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Education and Community Development (QF) and the national debating organisation for Qatar, aims to shape the global citizens of today and the intellectual leaders of tomorrow in Qatar and the region.
This year's first edition of QUDL in Arabic, one of the Centre's premier nationwide events, witnessed the first-time participation of CCQ's Debate Club in the coveted competition. The Club features a distinguished group of CCQ students aspiring to spread a culture of constructive dialogue.
