Earnscliffe Senior Public School to host debate competition on April 10, "iDebate therefore iExist"

Earnscliffe Senior Public School is pleased to invite you to the second annual iDebate therefore iExist Peel District School Board Debate Championship on April 10, 2017. It is a great opportunity for students of all grades to improve their leadership skills. The topics at hand will be related to all aspects of a modern society. Debate is an essential tool for developing and maintaining democracy and open societies. More than a mere verbal or performance skill, debate represents the ideals of reasoned argument, tolerance for divergent points of view and rigorous self-examination.

Each school team of four can be formed by teachers nominations, preliminary discussions, former and actual speech competition participants, social studies fans, etc. It is a great opportunity to give students a voice individually and as a team. We are confident that we can run another successful tournament and we are looking forward to seeing your students engage in some high-quality and competitive debate!
