SVGCC Jumps into the Cannabis Conversation

The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community College (SVGCC), much in tune with the national conversation surrounding the medical use of cannabis, will jump into the conversation this Friday January 24th 2020 as the institution is set to host a debate on the topic “The use of medical cannabis is in danger of being another ploy of the pharmaceutical industry”.

The event, hosted by the SVGCC Debating Club, will see participation from students representing the college’s Division of Arts, Sciences and General Studies (DASGS), and the Division of Nursing Education. Optimistic about the initiative, Director of the SVGCC, Nigel Scott commented “The SVGCC has a clear mandate to prepare our students for the world at large. The ability to speak clearly and think critically on topical issues is a part of that preparation. As a result, the College's debating club is one way of preparing our students and we fully support their efforts."

Friday’s debate will see a specialised format consisting of a first round team debate, then an individual component where students will address an impromptu topic. The format was tailored to help judges select the strongest performers who will advance to represent the college in the upcoming Windward Islands Debating Competition, slated for March 5th - 8th in Dominica.

Friday’s event will take place from 1:30 p.m. at the college’s Villa campus. An invitation is extended to the general public.
