Debating & Public Speaking

The ability to speak with clarity and confidence in a public forum is a highly valued skill both at school and in the workplace  – a skill to last a life time.  As a debating team member, students will explore controversial current issues, research, develop and defend arguments from many perspectives and become a more fluent and confident speaker in a fun and safe environment.

Gleneagles Secondary College offers a range of opportunities for students to fine-tune their public speaking skills – from in-class presentations to inter-class and inter-school debating competitions, and Statewide events like the conflict-resolution contests sponsored by the Law Institute of Victoria. Our Junior and Senior Debating Teams are enrolled in the Berwick Division of the Debating Association of Victoria (DAV).
