What is Debating & Public Speaking? Debating is a discussion on a particular matter in which opposing arguments are put forward. Public Speaking (also known as oratory) is the act of delivering a speech.

What is the purpose of Debating & Public Speaking? The purpose of debating is to convince the opposition that one’s argument is right. The purpose of public speaking is to communicate clearly and effectively to an audience.

Benefits of developing debating and oratory skills: Children develop skills on how to put an argument forward, how to listen and tolerate other people’s opinions, how to deconstruct an argument. We also stimulate children to be creative. We teach children to learn how to identify a problem and look for a solution. We also foster the development of resilience. Sometimes, some children tend to give up easily. We teach children that they need to try for alternate solutions to a given problem.
