We offer a variety of courses including:
- Introduction to argumentation & persuasion
- Masterclasses for competitive debate
- Emcee & oratory club training etc.
Here’s what we’ve been up to:
This summer, we were privileged to partner with the Singapore American School (SAS) Debate Club, to organise a Summer Learning programme for middle school students to acquire a core set of critical thinking and persuasive speaking skills. Participants were part of a week-long programme where they were engaged in mini-lectures, structured activities and exercises. Even though most of them did not have prior public speaking or debate experience, they were able to deliver individual speeches between 5-6 minutes in length by the end of the week! Participants also took home camp booklets and debate cases discussed during the camp to help them with post-camp self-learning.

We partnered with Tenby Schools (Penang) to organise the ‘Penang Debate Excellence workshop’ where participants were taught the fundamentals of competitive debate: from with how to read and interpret a debate motion and set up a case, to construct arguments and rebuttals and engage in mini impromptu debates. Participants also learnt about how debate skills acquired in the classroom can be applied in the real-world. The Penang Debate Excellence workshop was a joint-partnership between RedDot Academy and Tenby Schools (Penang) and was headed by Samuel Myat San and Stephanie Yap.
