Secondary School Training Camp 2017 - Register Now!

Written by DA(S) Admin on .

Debate Association (Singapore) is excited to announce the opening of registration for the Secondary School Training Camp on 20-22 November 2017

DA(S) warmly welcomes debaters to its annual debate camp for secondary school students held during the November holidays. The camp has traditionally been targeted at beginners at the secondary school level, but this year will feature a radical new change to also cater to more experienced debaters and repeat participants.

Whether it is to gear up for the Singapore Secondary School Debating Championships in 2018, or just to learn the basics of debating, every student will leave the camp far more adept in the art of persuasion.

All participants will be exposed to specially tailored programs to maximise the learning opportunities for everyone. These programs, specially crafted by experienced debate coaches, will differ based on our assessment of each participant’s abilities and unique developmental needs.

The camp will feature incredible masterclasses by local debating legends, who have made their mark on the regional and global stage. In addition to these masterclasses, veteran debate facilitators will conduct structured breakout sessions to provide individualised attention to every debater.


Finally, a practice tournament will be held during the camp to provide all participants valuable experience in a competitive environment as well as opportunities for extensive feedback sessions that would never be possible in a traditional tournament.
