The New Zealand Schools’ Debating Council is pleased to announce that we have entered into an agreement with the New Zealand Institute of Economic Research as our naming rights sponsor of the New Zealand Schools’ Debating Championship.
The funding provided by NZIER ensures that NZSDC is able to continue to run a high quality National finals that is accessible for all students across Aotearoa.
The partnership with NZIER is a natural fit for our organisation. The New Zealand Institute of Economic Research is an independent economic consultancy which has a core value of promoting better outcomes for all New Zealanders. Like us they recognise the public good in debating potential government actions and policies with logical reasoning.
The entire New Zealand Schools’ Debating Community is excited about the opportunity to work with Laurence Kubiak and the rest of the team from NZIER.
