Our school is hosting a debate – what do we do?

You could advertise around your local area or town – is there a local newspaper or radio station who would be interested? Don’t forget to tell your family and friends to come along and support you!

Please ensure that as you face the audience from the podium that the proposing team is on the right and the opposing team is on the left.

Host teams are responsible for providing the chairperson and timekeeper. Check with your teacher that you have a chairperson and timekeeper assigned to the task. After the debate it is always nice to have a cup of tea and a chat. It has become a tradition of the Concern Debates for host schools to provide a cuppa and a few biscuits after a debate.
