Junior Debating Program

Calling on all Years 7 and 8 students who like to argue and to challenge their public speaking skills! Fitzroy High School needs you in our Junior debating team! 

Fitzroy High School is offering students the opportunity to participate in the Debating Association of Victoria’s Junior Debating Program. This program is designed for first-time debaters, with a combination of professional coaching from the Association, exhibition debates, and practice debates against other schools. Participating students will be in teams of four or five, and will be supported by an FHS teacher who will work with the team as their coach. 

The program runs over four evenings across late Term 3 and early Term 4. It will run at a near-by school from 6pm to 7.30pm. Precise dates, locations, and times will be available once the number of participating students is confirmed and teams are registered.

If your child is interested in participating in this program, please email Imogen at imogen.lazarus@education.vic.gov.au
