As one of the leading educational institutions in Zambia, Rhodes Park School has been proud to host the World Scholar’s Cup – Lusaka Round for the second year running.

Activites started early on the morning of Monday 12 February as around 600 pupils from schools all over the country (including 192 of our own) begun to arrive at our Sibweni Road campus. They were soon oriented before being directed to various classrooms and other learning areas around the campus, where they faced off in Team Debates on interesting topics. The next event was Collaborative Writing held later in the day.

The program shifts to Mulungushi Internationa Conference Centre on Tuesday, 13 February 2018 for the final days events: Scholar’s Challenge and Scholar’s Bowl as well as the Talent Show and prize-giving.

Topics of exploration, from human relationships to the history of diplomacy, will be drawn from this year’s World Scholar’s Cup theme, An Entangled World.

The World Scholar’s Cup brings together over 25,000 students in 50 countries every year. Its goal: to inspire in young people of all backgrounds a love of learning, a confidence in new skills, and a sense of global citizenship. Scholars will have the chance to qualify for the 2018 Global Round of their choice in Kuala Lumpur, Barcelona, or Melbourne, and, in due course, for the Tournament of Champions at Yale University in the United States.
