Debating and Public Speaking

The College also participates in debating and public speaking.

Although irrelevant to the public speaking participation by students in competitions, the College also holds an annual Edmund Rice Oratory Competition, in where students are selected for outstanding participation for public speeches performed in English Classes. Students speak about a given topic (free choice for years 5 and 6) for a set amount of time. Judging is usually done by English Teachers or School Counsellers.

Famous quotes containing the words debating and, speaking, debating and/or public:

    Scepticism, as I said, is not intellectual only; it is moral also; a chronic atrophy and disease of the whole soul. A man lives by believing something; not by debating and arguing about many things. A sad case for him when all that he can manage to believe is something he can button in his pocket, and with one or the other organ eat and digest! Lower than that he will not get.
    Thomas Carlyle (1795–1881)

    Happy is the hearing man; unhappy the speaking man.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    Scepticism, as I said, is not intellectual only; it is moral also; a chronic atrophy and disease of the whole soul. A man lives by believing something; not by debating and arguing about many things. A sad case for him when all that he can manage to believe is something he can button in his pocket, and with one or the other organ eat and digest! Lower than that he will not get.
    Thomas Carlyle (1795–1881)

    ... until both employers’ and workers’ groups assume responsibility for chastising their own recalcitrant children, they can vainly bay the moon about “ignorant” and “unfair” public criticism. Moreover, their failure to impose voluntarily upon their own groups codes of decency and honor will result in more and more necessity for government control.
    Mary Barnett Gilson (1877–?)
