Debating Kicks Off in 2020
It is an exciting week for our King’s Pimpama Debating Teams as we launch our program for the first time in 2020. A large number of our participants are signing up for the very first time! We have 22 participants over both Year 5 and 6.
Our focus for this semester will be our participation in the Gold Coast debates at Coomera Anglican College. Debating in these competitions involves weekly training, preparing strong arguments, learning how to deliver an effective speech and being able to rebut an opposition's point of view. This is the fourth year that King’s Pimpama have entered this competition and we have seen great success, in previous seasons, that is continuing to grow. Throughout this season, we will also work towards transitioning them into the invitational Queensland Debating Union team that will take place later in the year. We look forward to another incredible year where students will learn the art of competing in this academic sport.
