Debating & Public Speaking
Debating and public speaking has a proud history at St Gregory’s College. Our students participate in many competitions throughout our school year. Among the many competitions we are involved in are the Catholic Schools Debating Association Public Speaking and Debating Competitions in terms 1 and 2. Students from years 7-12 have the opportunity to be involved in the various competitions that run from terms 1-4.
Debating and public speaking is one of the many areas of the extra-curricular life at St Gregory’s College that allows our students the opportunity to improve their communication skills in this academic pursuit. Our students have great enthusiasm for debating and public speaking here at the College; we have many of our old boys who continue to be involved as adjudicators. It is this enthusiasm and participation that continues to maintain our long tradition of success with public speaking and debating at St Gregory’s College.
