The debate club gives students of all abilities a fun way of developing their oracy skills. We use different activities to help students with their critical thinking and confident communication. The club could also help students to become more informed about political and global affairs, or provide a venue for students to train for debate competitions with local school, or at a national level.

Over fifty professionals were in attendance as students from all three grade levels had the opportunity to visit and speak with our visitors. Students had prepared questions and were instructed to visit three professionals during our Career Day. Police Officers, Nurses, Cybersecurity Professionals, Designers, Bankers, Engineers, Broadcasters, Music Producers, Coca-Cola and realtors are just a few of themany careers that were representated. It was a great day for everyone. Our career day is always a huge event, and the professionals who graciously give up their time to take part in our event seem to multiply in numbers years after year. The students loved learning and asking the questions and many of the professionals said that they would love to come back next year!
