Our school enters various debating competitions throughout the year, such as:

Debating offers an opportunity to question your views, challenge your thinking and thoughtfully consider other points of view.
The Premier's Debating Challenge is open to all NSW government schools, with the aim of developing the public speaking and reasoning skills of students from Years 5 to 11 in 2020. 

How do the debates work?

Every debate in the challenge is a one hour preparation debate. Teams do not know the topic or which side of the debate they are on until one hour before the debate starts. Once the preparation time is up, three speakers from each team take turns to speak, with a fourth silent speaker helping out during preparation and during the debate.
