“Speech is power: speech is to persuade, to convert, to compel.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Debate is one of the academic activities that gives students a creative room to express what they feel. The length and breadth of knowledge that they gain through this is simply unparalleled.
With the same perspective in view, the Inter-Class Debate Competition was organized for grades VI-VII. Some participants argued for the motion and some against the motion and some were interjectors. The teams were well prepared and they used various skills such as overstatement, definition, rhetoric, irony etc. to convince the audience. The participants, armed with statistics and data validated and made their arguments more emphatic with right facial expressions, body movements and gestures.All the teams exhibited great oratorical skills. They put in tremendous hard work to showcase their hidden talent. The debaters displayed confidence in presenting their arguments before audience. At the end of the heated but interesting debate which lasted for over an hour, the winners were declared.The event gave an impetus to the bright and energetic students of Prudence and inculcate in them a spirit of competitiveness and confidence.
