Term 3 is the Breakthrough for learning debating.

  • The first In-house you are figuring out how it all works
  • In your first Inter-school debate you face the terror of the unknown opponent…..sometimes a student just like yourself…at other times the master debater!!!  You go into shock, and enjoy the challenge….you learn so much….
  • In Term 3 you know what to expect and your preparation is better.  You know you need more facts, you practice until you can speak up loud without reading.  YOU WORK AS A TEAM- you’ve seen how much better it is to share and support each other.

Here are the new topics for Term 3, 2011.  Its so exciting to have so many wonderful resources on the internet to help with our research.
