I absolutely love debating. I’m sure at least some of you out there reading this post will think that too. Well a lot of you. A few days ago we had 4 practise debates, allowing 12 students try out to be in our NSW Premier Debating Rounds. We had topics about sport, education, children and social media.
Three reasons to love debating:
Getting to work with other people,
Sharing and comparing your ideas,
And most of all….. Having fun!
One main reason to not like debating:
1 hour preparation time- It can be stressful!
But I believe that we all gave it our best shot and had heaps of fun learning experiences. We all developed a fantastic and convincing speech in our last debate with all that practise. We were all confident and presented our speeches as a team, with lots of enthusiasm! Well done and good luck!
