Debating is a great way for students to improve their public speaking skills, gain more confidence, meet new people, be part of a team and develop their analytical skills. 

All PLC Sydney debaters have the opportunity to represent the College in at least one external competition.

Major competitions include Archdale Debating Competition, ISDA Debating Competition, Macquarie Cup Debating Competition and University of Sydney Debating Tournament.

The Year 7 Archdale and ISDA teams are selected very early in the year. All other years participate in trails in Term 4.
