"I loved this Workshop, especially being introduced to techniques I was unaware of such as thematic rebuttal.  I also enjoyed the opportunity to debate my peers in a comfortable and friendly manner".

Sophie Year 10 - Loreto Mandeville Hall

I loved the debate workshop
"Joel enjoyed your debating sessions so much. He had no idea what debating was about before you showed them “the ropes”. He really looked forward to the final “big debate” and showed a level of confidence towards public speaking he didn't have before.  So, a big thanks for doing that for the school/kids, it really enhances the extra-curricular opportunities for students".

 Frank - Parent St Anthony's Primary

A new level of confidence
  "Just passing on my gratitude for the great work you did with the year 11 students in preparing them for their leadership speeches to their peers.  The speeches were a significant improvement on previous years with students all adhering to their allotted times and speaking confidently".
