At Cathedral Vidya School , Debates and extemporary speaking is an essential element of the Academic Program. Students are encouraged to participate and present in all subjects over writing and memorizing.
Students from as early as Grade 4 learn to address gatherings of peers and adults and this assists them in developing skills for future readiness such as confidence, self esteem and vocabulary and communication skills.
Students involved in debating develop higher level critical thinking skills through application , analysis, synthesis, evaluation and creativity. They come to understand what they believe in on issues that confront them both locally and globally leading them into engaging as responsible and contributive global citizens.
