Raffles Debaters

2020 Debate Club



If you have ever debated, you would know how intense the pursuit is—your every move scrutinised by your adversaries, the verdict resting on your ability to think on your feet, not just about how to defeat the opponent, but also to win over hearts and minds in the process.

Debates are an avenue for us to explore the conundrums that can cleave a society, to inspect and interrogate arguments that have significant impact on important policy-making. It is this impetus towards developing a better, more reflexive society that sustains debaters.

But it does not matter whether you have experience debating or are totally new to it. It is the passion to develop yourself as a critical thinker and compelling speaker that is essential in debating— and that’s what we are looking for. If you think you’ve got it, join us today.
