Speaking and Debating
Debating and Declamation Society (Senior Wing)
Language learning is all about hearing, speaking, reading and writing. The art of debating emerges out of these four skills and is an integrated expression of all the four. Debates happen when one has assimilated one's mastery of the aforesaid skills fruitfully and comprehensively. Debating and declamation help us practise and demonstrate our critical thinking skills as well. Debates foster the ability of careful and patient listening. Declamation help us learn the art of powerful presentation of our thoughts. Together they hone our communication skill which is so necessary for growth in the modern competitive world. Needless to say, debating and declamation are a necessary part of the student's language learning experience. Together these two vouchsafe to a student a confident personality, multifaceted knowledge cutting across several disciplines and an eagerness to learn new things.
"DPS Debating and Declamation Society" has been set up to foster the growth of communication skills in our students. The students meet every Wednesday after the school hours to debate various social, national and international topics. The topics include issues that pertain to the students, their lives and issues relevant to them. The Debating Society has twenty five members drawn largely from classes IX-XI. The Debating Society has been set up by Mr. Alexander Francis, HOD English at Delhi Public School. He facilitates the meetings and acts as the animator for the group.
