Summer Programme Debating and Public Speaking for PYP Years 4-6 and MYP Students | 24 to 28 June

In collaboration with the Inter-university – Inter-department Masters Programme  ‘Debating, Human Sciences and Education’.

The effective use of the principles of communication, persuasion strategies, and speech and message decoding techniques are essential elements in education concerning:

  1. structured thinking
  2. comprehensive reasoning
  3. the development of logic
  4. the recognition, control and correct management of falsehoods during interactions.

Through the approach of different visions of reality and its variants, rhetoric, both as a science and as an art, promotes critical and creative thinking through the development of specific mechanisms by age group in such a way as to develop communication skills.

In this context, during the Camp, PYP students (Years 4-6), as well as MYP students, will have the opportunity to attend important lectures and take part in experiential workshops such as:

– Creative thinking and innovation

-Body Language, drama and communication
