Debating in 2019

Debating hones skills in analysis, critical thinking, listening and speaking. An offer to join a competitive team is given to students in Year 7 -12 who are selected through the audition process. Other opportunities to learn oratory skills exist through participation in House Debating and attendance at Debating Club (Friday lunch).
