Welcome to Speech & Debate Academy Term 1
Speech & Debate Academy (SDA) is an after-school program where youth have an opportunity to learn and practice public speaking and debate skills. They will be encouraged to express their own opinions in thoughtful and creative ways. Students in grades 5 to 12 will meet once a week for five weeks. Classes will be divided by age and experience level. Registration is capped at 40 students.
Due to low registration for the virtual option, we are unable to provide these classes virtually.
