As part of the Regional Catholic Schools Debating Competition (RCSDC), students are afforded the opportunity to debate fellow students from across the region on a variety of social issues. This allows students to not only develop the confidence and skills needed to speak in a public forum, but also the ability to think on their feet and make arguments that are logical and well supported.

With topics that encompass a wide variety of issues such as politics, sports, social media, the environment and technology, the RCSDC provides a forum for students from all specialisations and interests to be engaged and demonstrate their talent for informed rhetoric. This in turn benefits the students who become more articulate, socially aware and responsible citizens.

2018 Debating Results

In 2018 De La Salle Revesby competed in the Regional Catholic Schools Debating Competition. For five Wednesday afternoons, students from Years 7, 8 and 10 competed against other Catholic schools in the region.

Our best performing teams were our year 7 and 8 students, with year 8 making the semi-finals and our year 7 team taking out the grand final.

Congratulations to our Year 7 De La Salle Revesby Debating Team – the RCSDC champions for 2018.

All debating students are to be congratulated for not only their performances in the debates but also the way in which they conducted themselves at all times throughout the competition.
