We have had success running the International Debating Competition in 2020. The competition was truly international with more than ten countries participating, including Australia, Canada, Malaysia, and South Korea and we hope to build upon our current record of exciting and engaging competitions.
There are currently limited opportunities for students to practice and compete against students in debate, particularly at the end of the school year. COVID-19 has only made this more challenging and has cancelled many school debating tournaments.
We are aiming to provide an online platform complete with Australian and international schools, adjudicators, and tournament administration for students to continue developing their public speaking skills, critical thinking, and general knowledge.
