OG’s Debating Society
Who can participate?
We welcome anyone who enjoys speaking English and wants to express their views regardless of whether they have any debating skills or not.
It’s fun! And you don’t need special expertise.
You get the chance to discuss important issues, to present your ideas, opinions and experiences and listen to other pupils’ views.
You will gain more confidence in speaking English.
You will improve your ability to perform well in presentations, interviews and a range of life situations.
You will learn to argue and reason for something.
You will get practical experience in the fundamental skills of debating and public speaking.
Every year Ordrup Gymnasium participates in the English Public Speaking Competition in March.
If you want to be a member of Ordrup’s Debating Society send an application Birgit Fiig or Jackie Shawe explaining why debating/public speaking is something for you. Application will be open in September.
