Debating

Students at our campus compete in The NSW Premier's Debating Challenge competitions for the various year groups. In recent years, students have achieved outstanding success in these competitions, with teams regularly reaching the regional and state finals stages of the competitions.

Expert debating coaches, many of whom are former students, are engaged by the school to support our students, with coaching sessions being held most mornings of the week prior to the beginning of classes. While not every student is able to be selected in a team, no student will be turned away from coaching sessions and our debating coaches regularly hold sessions where all students have the opportunity to develop, hone and demonstrate their skills.

Our school is regularly represented by students who gain selection into NSW Combined High Schools debating teams who compete against teams from the Catholic and Private school sectors in annual challenges.

All Year 7 students participate in a school based debating Gala Day in Term 4 each year.
