Chinese Debate

Chinese Debate is a newly established Student Interest Group (SIG).  Students broaden their horizons, think critically and learn to articulate their stands in a sophisticated and polite manner during the practice sessions. 

Last year, two teams of students participated in the ‘创贤杯’ debate contest. Both teams gained invaluable experience from pitting against the debaters from other schools and comments from the judges. In 2020, Chinese Debate plans to participate in ‘狮城杯’, a large-scale Chinese debate competition for high school students. Members of the SIG will get to mingle with local debaters as well as debaters from Malaysia and China.

Interested students do not have to possess any debating experience to join Chinese Debate. What matters is the passion and the drive to learn and hone debating skills.
