Free Debate recently ran an exciting 3-week confident speaking workshop at Sandringham East Primary School.
The local Rotary organisation kindly supplied pizza and drinks to fuel the minds of a dozen young up-and-comers who grew their skills over the three sessions.
Whilst starting off with some nervousness, all students delivered speeches in every session, arguing for things they would like to change in the world and Australia, from marriage equality laws to refugee policy. The customised after-school training focussed on how to look confident and win over audiences, with tailored feedback given to each and every student on how to personally improve.
The final session culminated in a debate in which our inspiring participants found it hard to stop talking! FreeDebate trainers were impressed – all of the participants blew our expectations (as well their own nerves) out of the water.
