Competition Skill Building


The Auckland Schools Debating committee is the largest secondary school debating competition in the country. The Seasonal Championship is a one-day school debating competition held in March.

Competing in debating is a great way for students to gain valuable communication, teamwork, and logical thinking skills while meeting new people from across the country. Students compete in teams of three and take either the affirmative or the negative side of a topic. Two teams debate the given topic through a series of speeches where each team presents their own arguments and rebuts their opponent's arguments. At the end of the round, judges choose a winner.

Students who want to participate should join their school's team.
