Debates and Discussions Club

This club will give students the opportunity to flex their minds, explore ideas and debate the issues of the day. Discussions will range from philosophy, science and current affairs centered on news topics of the day. Structured between hypothetical discussions and strategies for debates, students will uncover different ways to improve their critical thinking, confident communication, and speaking and listening skills. Students will work collaboratively to decide issues to explore and discuss in an open and mutually respectful environment that allows students the opportunity to explore new thoughts and ideas and evaluate their own.
