Public speaking and debating

Public speaking opportunities are regularly offered to students. Each class is rostered to chair the fortnightly assembly. Other opportunities are offered on a smaller scale in class. The school runs a yearly public speaking competition where each student is given the opportunity to prepare and present a speech in front of their class. Winners of the school public speaking competition are given the opportunity to compete in the Multicultural Perspectives Public Speaking competition and the Hills Public Speaking Competition. 

Debating programs are implemented in English programs across years 3-6. The school has a debating team which competes in the Premier's Debating Challenge as well as the Ridges Friendly Debating competition.)
