    The Raffles Gavel Club We are a subsidiary of Toastmasters International, which means that we make a considerable amount of speeches during CCA. We follow the established curriculum consisting of 10 speaking projects as part of club activities. Once you’ve completed this, a globally-recognised Toastmasters accreditation will be given, making each member a certified speaker and voice for advocacy.

    During sessions, we carry out various speech activities and exercises designed to nurture each member through practice, experience, feedback and mentorship. Besides speaking, we also believe in the power of listening. Here at Gavel Club, we provide a safe space for every member to explore issues close to their heart. So if you would like to speak about something, hear different perspectives, or just learn more about speech-making, Gavel welcomes you!
