Mary MacKillop Catholic College places a high value on the skills of critical thinking, self-confidence, and camaraderie developed through Public Speaking and Debating.
The College participates in the CSDA Public Speaking Competition, and the South Western Combined College’s Debating Association. Each Friday afternoon, debaters look at various topics that affect young people today, from the environment to education.
All Mary MacKillop students are encouraged to participate in Public Speaking and Debating, or act as timekeepers, chairpersons or ushers when hosting.
Speechcraft at MMCC ultimately offers students a great opportunity to participate in the co-curricular life of the College.
