Debating

The Debating Society meets once a week to debate a wide range of issues, both contemporary and traditional. Past motions have included "This House believes women can and will never succeed in the workplace" and "This House would ban Barbie". They usually hold mace debates, but members are introduced to other styles of debate such as British Parliamentary.

 

The Society participates in inter-school debates and competitions, including the Rotary Youth Speaks Competition, which provides an interesting introduction to public speaking. In all, the Debating Society offers a fun and inspiring opportunity for girls to improve their debating and public speaking skills with rewarding results.
