Sydney Speaking School from Speaking Schools Australasia on Vimeo.

These school holidays, Sydney Speaking School is offering an exclusive range of interactive workshops in debating and public speaking for primary and senior school students (ages 6 to 15) in North Sydney, Inner West 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.

    My eldest grand-son ( Year 12 HSC student 2018) has been a debater and public speaking orator since Primary level at school. In Year 6 he won the Barry O'Farrell Public Speaking Award for his school. Has continued through at High School level. Elected as Vice Captain of his school and received the Principals High Achiever Award for 2018.

    This course would benefit any young student to instill confidence.
