Students at the Berwick Campus compete in three levels of debating: DAV (State level), SIS (Inter-school) and House (Campus inter-House). Debating is a collaborative experience that widens each child’s knowledge, understanding of real world issues and skillset, allowing for literacy and numeracy development.
The debating program at College runs from Term 1 to 4 with students having many opportunities to transfer their skills across the curriculum.

Students are required to commit to weekly or fortnightly meetings to support their team and practise skills
