  KEY INFORMATION

CCA Description

Only recently becoming a core CCA, the current Debate team is a fraternity that has weathered rough patches, but has also shared victories. The members share a bond that extends beyond the CCA. It is in Debate Club that members learn the importance of both listening (to what opponents and team mates are saying), and speaking (with conviction and sound reasoning).

 

The Debate team believes in providing opportunities. We believe that interest and passion outweigh expertise, and we welcome all students who are looking for a warm and familial environment where they can develop their love for debate, grow into confident speakers, or even just to get to know some of the wittiest students in the school.

CCA Objectives

  1. To help students to develop a greater understanding of self and others
  2. To develop self-discipline, self-motivation and self-confidence
  3. To encourage students to be critical thinkers, to see things from different perspectives
  4. To develop students’ confidence in public speaking
