Foundations of Debating (Years 7 – 9)



Mon – Wed, 3 – 5 July 2017 at Kings


Mon – Wed, 10 – 12 July 2017 at Shore

(North Sydney)

This three day foundations course is designed for students who are interested in learning how to debate at a high school level.  This course provides an overview of the basics of debating, and allows students to experience their first debates in a welcoming and comfortable environment.

This course allows students to:

  • understand the rules and roles involved in debating at a high school level;
  • develop key strategies to help them work as a team to prepare a case, brainstorm arguments and devise effective rebuttal; and
  • increase their confidence and speaking ability through a range of activities and practice debates.

Given that an increasing number of high schools are only allowing a select few to benefit from their debating programs, this program helps provide students with a step up by providing them with the foundations of debating and a supportive environment in which to practice their newfound skills.

As with all of our programs, class sizes are kept small to ensure that students have ample opportunity to practice their skills and to receive regular individualised feedback from one of our experienced coaches.

If your child has already completed the Foundations of Debating course, or already form part of their school debating team, we would recommend that you have a look at our experienced high school debating program, Practice Debates, which will give them even more opportunities to develop their skills.
