Take this opportunity to learn from fellow students around the world! This competition allows your child to learn from other debaters and gain an exposure to critical thinking and public speaking.
For ages 7 – 12, no debating experience required on 3rd and 4th December 2022.
Research, reasoning, and even public speaking skills are just a few of the many benefits that come with learning debating. From planning your argument – even if it’s one you disagree with – to choosing your words with care, debating can prepare you to take on any challenge life may present to you.
This competition allows your child to have fun while learning the concepts of critical thinking, structuring their thoughts and ideas, and improving their confidence through public speaking.
As a debater, your child would be exposed to critical thinking, improving on their research skills, articulation, emotional control & public speaking from a young age. These invaluable skills would stay with your child and help them to grow and excel throughout their school and adult working life.
