Development Weekend

The Development Weekend is an opportunity for all participants in the Schools Debating Competition, regardless of skill or experience level, to improve and refine their public speaking and debating skills. The 2018 Development Weekend will be held over the weekend of March 17 and March 18, in late Term 1. 

The 2018 Development Weekend will be similar in nature to 2017. Students will be required to commit to the entire 4.5 hour session at their chosen venue. 

Registrations for Development Weekend 2018 are open and will close on the 14th of March unless capacity is reached at an earlier date.

Students are required to bring their own lunch and morning/afternoon tea for the event (they will have two breaks of approximately 15-30 minutes during the day). Please wear casual clothes on the day (School uniform is not required).

If you require any further information, please contact Nic at
