CSDA and Archdale Debating

Registration has opened for debating for both CSDA and Archdale debating. Please ensure that before your daughter registers, you take the time to check that the dates outlined for both competitions do not clash with existing commitments. It is important that students commit to their team and are available for training and debating. The dates for both competitions can be found in the table below  and information regarding fees, selection process and training sessions are available in the Oratory Handbook.

Any further questions can be directed to the   oratory team.

To register for debating, please  click here.

Registrations close on  Saturday 9 March and trials, if required, will take place after school in Week 8. Students will be emailed information about this in Week 7.


UN Youth Australia

UN Youth Australia offers a number of programs throughout the year. These programs are designed to be fun, educational and give students a taste of UN work. The following opportunities have opened for registration. Please register your interest with Ms O’Dwyer before you complete your registration.


Year 7 and Year 8 Introduction to High School Debating Workshop

To prepare students in Years 7 and 8 interested in debating, a workshop will be delivered by the Academic Activities Leaders and Senior Debaters. This workshop is a one hour session and will be run in Week 6 on Tuesday 5  March from 3:30-4:30pm. This is a great taste tester for students to discover what debating is in high school in a fun environment. Students do not need to register as a debater to attend, nor are they then automatically part of the debating team if they do attend. A permission note has been sent directly to Year 7 and 8. Please ensure your daughter returns this by 1pm on the Tuesday 5 March to oratory@loretonh.nsw.edu.au


Coaches and Adjudicators           

We are inviting ex-students and parents to be a part of the Oratory@LN team in 2019. We are looking for adjudicators and coaches and no experience is necessary, just simply an interest in all things oratory. You will need a Working with Children number.

If you are interested, please contact the oratory team via  oratory@loretonh.nsw.edu.au

For further information, please refer to the Oratory@LN Handbook and or contact us at  oratory@loretonh.nsw.edu.au
