Debating & Public Speaking

Public speaking is an integral part of the curriculum at Portland Secondary College.  The school has representatives in the major competitions, such as Rostrum Voice of Youth, Plain English Speaking and Legacy Junior Public Speaking.

Year levels also run a debating competition which is run primarily by students. These debates are held at junior and senior level and often include Staff vs Student debates.

Debating and Public speaking is open to all interested students, whatever their level of experience.
