This club is open to students from Grades 7 to 11. Participants discuss current events, have seminars on how to construct a persuasive speech and refute an opponent, and run one round of debate. A University student who belongs to the McGill Debating Union facilitates the meetings. Debaters attend weekly meetings, but they can also sign up for tournaments that take place in Montreal or elsewhere in Canada. ECS debaters have a strong history of winning awards, both as individuals and in teams!
