Fun and educational courses over the school holiday period

These winter school holidays, Sydney Speaking School is offering an exclusive range of holiday workshops in debating and public speaking for primary and senior school students in Years 1 9 in North Sydney, Stanmore and Parramatta.

This is a unique opportunity for your child to find their voice, overcome their fears and develop valuable life skills.

Sydney Speaking School, the largest of the Australian Speaking Schools, seeks to remedy the lack of good quality in public speaking throughout greater Sydney. Using their combined skills honed through years of experience, its coaches aim to bring out the charismatic speaker that hides within every student, shy or outgoing, by using fun, engaging and welcoming programs targeted at improving the speaking skills of school students.

Each specialised program aims to improve the speaking skills of primary and senior school students and is presented in a welcoming environment. Every class is also kept small and each student will receive individualised feedback and guidance from the experienced and passionate coaches.

Choose from Sydney Speaking School's range of 2 and 3 day courses and introduce your child to the world of public speaking and debating this summer. Bookings are now open.

    What a great School holidays course for debaters. My grand-son has been a debater since year 4 at Primary level and continues today (Year 12). He won the Barry O'Farrell Award (NSW) for Public Speaking for his primary school. I have had the pleasure to see him participate in Debating and Public Speaking during his school years. From a very shy child to now a very confident young 18 year old.
