The students of CAIE 5 debated on the topics ‘Junk food should be banned for children’ and
‘Uniforms should be abolished in schools’.
Debate sessions help our children to generate effective critical thinking along with building
confidence and work on their speaking skills. It develops excellent oral and written
communication skills, critical thinking skills, and effective tools for research, organization and
presentation. It also helps the students to develop strategies to overcome fears of public speaking.
The facilitator divided the entire class into two groups, discussed the topic and asked one group
to talk for the statement and the other to talk against the same.Students were then given enough
time to prepare their arguments. The entire class participated and every child came up with an
argument/ statement which made the debate session very interesting.
