Merrifield College 12 student Pooja Vijay has been selected to represent South Africa as part of the SA Debating team. Pooja, who is also the current Merrifield SRC Head, recently attended the South African schools Debate Championship trials where she made the SA A team.
“This means that from now on I’ll be coached intensely from coaches who have ranked internationally and I will compete in an international competition which will take place online due to Covid,” Pooja said.
“It’s such a huge honour because I’ve been working my whole high school career towards this.”
Well done, Pooja, Merrifield is so proud of you!
