- Senior Debate (Year 4-7) The Debating Society at The English School has over the last 25 years or so made huge strides in promoting public speaking as a serious discipline both at the School and in Cyprus. We have taken part in the International Independent Schools Public Speaking Tournament since 1991 (normally held in Canada and the USA), winning categories in Persuasive Speaking, After-dinner Speaking, Extemporaneous Speaking, Impromptu, and Dramatic Interpretation. We have also been firm supporters of the World Individual Debating and Public Speaking Championship, traveling to the UK, USA, Argentina, South Africa, Hong Kong, and Australia. The English School is a founder member of this competition and hosted in 1995, 2000 and 2005 with great success.
