If your son is well-spoken, intelligent, and knowledgeable on current affairs, then he will benefit from choosing Debating as a co-curricular activity during the Winter season.
Debating can be joined alongside sport, as the competitions take place on Friday nights. Students train two sessions per week week, and these are flexible in order to accommodate students’ other commitments. Debating can also be a standalone Winter co-curricular option.
Each year, the Debating students in Year 12 achieve some of our highest ATAR results, including some of the members of the 2021 Honour Roll. These students compete in Debating their entire time at the College, proving the academic benefits of the activity.
Waverley College competes in two Debating competitions during the Winter season:
- CSDA (Catholic Schools’ Debating Association) runs in Term 2, weeks 1-6
- CAS runs in Term 3, weeks 1-5
We are currently looking for 10 Year 7 students who would be eager to represent the College in Debating.
If your son is interested in participating in Debating, please contact the convenor, Ms Emma Halpin at firstname.lastname@example.org and she will provide your son with more information.

Convenor of Public Speaking and Debating
