Attention Year 7 Parents: Debating opportunities for your son
If your son is well-spoken, intelligent and knowledgable 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 a week and these are flexible to order to accommodate students’ other commitments.
We are currently looking for around 9-10 year 7 students who would be eager to represent the College in Debating. Debating has gained steady popularity at Waverley, in recent years our Senior team made it to the grand final in NSW. We also had an undefeated year 7 team in the CAS competition last year. Furthermore, each year the debating students in year 12 students achieve some of our highest ATAR results including the Dux of 2017. 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 runs in Term 2 weeks 1-6 and CAS runs in term 3 weeks 1-5.
If your son is interested in participating in debating, please contact the convenor, Cassandra Foster at email@example.com and she will provide your son with more information.
