Dear Students, Coaches and Teachers,
The Debate Association (Singapore) is happy to announce that we will be conducting a two and a half day debate camp from Friday 18 June to Sunday 20 June 2010. The Camp will start at 9 a.m. on Friday and Saturday and at 1.30pm on Sunday and end at 5 p.m. for all 3 days.
The camp will target secondary school students who have no or little debating experience and are looking to be introduced to debates. Through the camp, we aim to:
* Introduce to participants debating and public speaking skills;
* Reinforce their argumentative, and thinking skills;
* Enrich young debaters through interaction with former national and international speakers who can be role models for their younger counterparts;
* Allow young debaters to network with like-minded students, and cultivate a strong debating fraternity within their age group.
The cost fee for the camp is S$100 per participant and covers administrative costs, training materials and lunch for Friday and Saturday.
The deadline for application is 12 June 2010. Should you have any queries, please feel free to email Jun Yi at email@example.com. Details on the programme will be distributed once students
