Speech and Debating

It is well recognised that the ability to speak confidently and with conviction is a valuable skill in many areas of our lives.

Good communication skills support clear thinking and allow us to connect with others in meaningful and rewarding ways.

GSG offers a variety of opportunities for students to develop speaking skills in school, interschool, state, national and international competitions, such as:

  • House Debating
  • Western Australian Debating League Interschool Competition
  • Kojonup Speech and Drama Festival
  • Country Week
  • Australian Individual  Debating and Public Speaking Competition.   
  • World Individual  Debating and Public Speaking Competition.

As well as earning Wave Awards and earning points towards colours, public speaking engages our young people, develops self confidence and equips them to meet the challenges of life beyond school.

Students are actively encouraged to join a team as a speaker or simply to help and learn from the sidelines until the great orator within is ready to step up and be heard!
