Debate & Oratorial Society

Debate & Oratorial Society

The St. Anthony’s Canossian Secondary School’s Debating and Oratorical Society (DOS)’s rich debating history started with a group of students who expressed their interest in engaging in lively debate. From there on, DOS has stayed true to its original calling – that is to hone public speaking and debating skills in members of the CCA. DOS members today actively participate in debates and competitions. They also play a key role as student emcees at school events and functions. Embedded with the importance of thinking on their feet coupled with the active pursuit of current affairs and general knowledge, members are constantly challenged to break out of their comfort zone and seek to excel in the acquisition of skills and knowledge.
