    Words have power, and here at Gavel Club we support each other to harness this power through public speaking. We are a subsidiary of Toastmasters International, which is an organisation that aims to empower individuals to become effective communicators and leaders. Upon completing the Toastmasters curriculum, members are given a globally-recognised Toastmasters accreditation, and are certified as a speaker and advocate.

    Beyond CCA sessions, Gavel offers other opportunities for members to grow as speakers. Besides participating in competitions, we also enjoy attending public speaking events such as TEDxYouth talks. Here at RI, we contribute by emceeing school events and collaborating with other CCAs on matters regarding public speaking. We greatly look forward to welcoming our new batch of Gaveliers, whom we hope will grow as speakers and listeners through their journey with us!
