Do you want to boost your public speaking confidence and style? Develop your depth of analysis? Build on your critical reasoning and listening skills? Become more persuasive? Then the Trinity Debating Club is for you!

Students of any age are welcome to come along to the Trinity Debating Club’s weekly practices, but the local debating competition is open to students in Years 9-13. Junior and senior debating teams participate in a range of events throughout the year such as the Dunedin Secondary Schools Debating Competition, the Otago Regional One-Day Debating Competition, the annual Trinity Catholic College Teacher vs Student Debate, and the junior and senior debates in the Bishop’s Shield competition. 

Being part of the Trinity Debating Club is a great way to make new friends, learn valuable skills, and have fun.
