Debating

Home » Cultural » Debating

As the world continually shifts, posing new questions daily about human experience and ethics, it is often challenging to decide where to stand as society confronts increasingly complex issues. For the speakers of the Jeppe Girls’ Debating team, it these very issues that must be probed, researched and argued convincingly about over the course of the year.

Speaking skills are developed and honed in practice sessions and the friendly ongoing rivalry with the Jeppe Boys’ team allows both junior and senior speakers to practice their speaking in a series of friendly, but often hotly contested, debates.

The Interhouse Debating competition saw many passionate speakers represent their houses in the third term.

According to Margaret Heffernan, “For good ideas and true innovation, you need human interaction, conflict, argument and debate”. The Jeppe Girls’ Debating team embodies this philosophy, and we look forward to continued Debating growth and talent.
