NZSDC has been reviewing advice and recent developments related to the outbreak of COVID-19 in New Zealand.
Auckland Regionals is a large gathering of students from schools across Auckland. As such NZSDC has decided to postpone this weekend’s Auckland Regionals in order to minimise the health risk to students, schools and the wider debating community. We hope to be able to run Auckland Regionals later in 2020.
In order to select the Auckland Regional teams, NZSDC will be running a selection weekend in place of Auckland Regionals. Speakers have been selected for this weekend based on performances at Premier Advanced Round 1 and Seasonal Championships as well as during Auckland Development Squad and New Zealand Team Development programme sessions. We will be in touch with any selected speakers with further details about this weekend and to confirm their attendance.
ASD will be reviewing the status of upcoming ASD grades and events in the coming days and will update the community as soon as a decision is taken.
