Opportunities in Debating and Public Speaking

Debating A strong tradition of debating exists at Christchurch Girls' High School and several of our debaters have gone on to debate at the national and international level. There are plenty of opportunities for casual and competitive involvement in debating such as the Press Cup competitions (for senior and junior teams) and the Nga Kete Cup for juniors. 

Public Speaking The school runs its own strongly contested senior and junior competitions and speech competitions run by groups outside school are also supported.
