The ability to speak in front of an audience is a very important life skill. The aim of Debating is to help students improve their confidence and public speaking skills while having fun at the same time. Debating gives students the chance to think about and discuss a wide variety of issues while learning to formulate clear and coherent arguments and the results are always impressive and thought-provoking.
In Debating we meet every week so students can practice these skills in front of their peers. Students suggest motions and, in teams, they prepare to debate in our school league. In addition to this we enter teams in inter-school competitions. For the past two years we have had students competing in the Matheson National Junior Mace to great success.
