Debate CCA training
1 - 2 times weekly
2 . 5 hours per session
Punggol Secondary School Debate Club is a young debate club which did not have formal coaching before we were engaged. We introduced the lower secondary students to the fundamentals of debate and prepared the upper secondary students for local debate competitions.
Under our guidance, Punggol Secondary School also saw an improvement in their performance at debate competitions. In the Singapore Secondary School Debate Championship 2019, they emerged Quarterfinalist (advancing to the elimination rounds for the first time in history!) with speakers ranked amongst the Top 20 Best Speakers. The lower secondary team also achieved the impressive feat of emerging Semifinalist at the Evergreen Debate Invitationals, with speakers ranked amongst the Top 10 Best Speakers.
Here's what the teacher had to say:
"Dialogic Learning Services has been engaging Punggol Secondary School’s ELDDS students in debating since January 2019. The company has a team of dedicated coaches who are able to cater to the needs of our students. Under their guidance, the debate team won all three preliminary rounds of Singapore Secondary Schools Debating Championship 2019, and proceeded to the Quarter Finals. The coaches are debaters themselves thus enabling them to understand and appeal to the hearts and minds of our students. We are very sure that the company will grow from strength to strength and achieve the goals they have set for themselves."
