Debating and Public Speaking

A range of debating and public speaking opportunities are offered at Star of the Sea College, allowing students to develop their confidence and share their voice. Students train as a group, working in teams and providing each other with intellectual challenges.

Some of the opportunities include:

  • Senior DAV Debating
  • Junior DAV Debating 
  • DAV Women’s Competition
  • Monash Asian Studies Debating Competition
  • British Parliamentary Debating

Star is proud to support the development of vocal young people. The Debaters Association of Victoria (DAV) is a non-profit association that exists to promote debate.
