SR Debates

Debating requires breadth and depth of knowledge, intellectual dexterity, and critical thinking skills. Through focused training on speech craft, logic and rhetoric, SRJC Debates aims to build a distinguished College debate team. Students undergo rigorous in-house coaching sessions as well as external courses in debate adjudication. Their abilities are then put to the test when they participate in prestigious debating and current affairs competitions.  Some past highlights include participation in the MOE-ACJC Intercollegiate Debating Championships, the Debate Association (Singapore)-ITE ‘Singapore Speaks’ Debate Series, the NUS Political Association Debate Series and the NTU Current Affairs Society Challenge. Team members have been identified among the top 20 speakers at the NUSPA and DA(S)-ITE Debate tournaments, and have also represented the college at public-speaking competitions.
