What is High School Debating?

Thanks to Niamh Condon and her team of senior debaters for a successful debating workshop this week. We had a great turn out and the Year 7 and 8 students developed some great arguments and ideas.


CSDA and Archdale Debating

Registration has opened for Debating for Both CSDA and Archdale debating. Please ensure that before your daughter registers, you take time to ensure 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 are below  and information regarding fees, selection process and training sessions are available in the Oratory Handbook.
