Welcome to the Home of South African schools’ Debating

What is schools’ debating?
Schools’ debating is a structured debate of two teams against one another with three speakers in a team. The teams debate on a wide range of topics which include, governance, economics, law, politics, human rights and philosophy. World Schools Style debating is the most used format and is an adaptation of British Parliamentary and Australasian Debating Style.
