The debate tradition is alive and well at Palmer! As one of the only debate clubs operating in Richmond, this engaging group meets once a week after school for about two hours each meeting. During this time, students practice cross-examination and parliamentary debate styles, and hone their argument skills while discussing a variety of current and controversial topics. As a member of the Debate and Speech Association of BC, there are many opportunities for competitive and recreational debate as well. The skills developed in our club are excellent for use in classes where students need to organize information for writing and speaking presentations. Lastly, and most importantly…the Palmer Debate Club is just a whole lot of fun!
Please see Mr. Gavsie in Room 209 if you have any questions or require more information.
