WADL has developed a specially tailored introduction to debating program for Primary School students to further critical thinking and public speaking skills. 

The program is a 5 week course consisting of five development seminars.


These seminars will focus on:

  • Matter

  • Manner

  • Method

  • Case Construction

  • a Formal Debate

The course also aims to teach some core aspects of the national curriculum such as rights and responsibilities, current events and persuasive writing skills.

Seminars cost $400 for the whole 5 week course, with 1 seminar normally costing $100. This cost applies per class of children (approx 20-30 max).


There is a discount available for schools with an ICSEA value below 1030.
