Debating and public speaking
At Randwick Boys’ High School there are a number of opportunities for students to participate in extracurricular English, including joining a debating team or representing the school in various public speaking competitions. These competitions give students the opportunity to:
· develop a range of skills necessary in life beyond the classroom
· gain broad, multi-faceted knowledge of disciplines outside their normal academic subjects
· foster self-esteem
· engage in rigorous higher order and critical thinking skills
· improve note-taking skills
· engage in team work.
