Etis has an active debating society with members from the national line and the IB. Society meetings are arranged regularly by students themselves, with matches adjudicated by university debaters. Etis debaters take part in regional debating events and compete at the Finnish Championship Tournament. Recently three members of the team attended a workshop in Athens, a city renowned for its eloquence in the ancient world. Debating is a fine way to foster presentation skills, hone argument and develop confidence with public speaking. IB students get CAS points for debating and national side students complete an optional course. For more information visit the Etis Debating Society on Facebook.
