English Literature, Debate and Drama Society
The ELDDS Club aims to develop confidence and creative thinking in our members. The activities not only promote oral communication and dramatisation skills, but are also fun and engaging for students. Members hone different skills throughout the year, namely public speaking, drama and debate. Opportunities are also given for our members to perform during various school events such as International Friendship Day and National Day.
The debate course not only teaches students to be good speakers but also good listeners. They are taught how to prepare a good speech based on the given topic, actively listen to the opposition and come up with a response on the spot. They develop critical thinking skills as they are required to think clearly and logically in order to craft their responses in a structured way. Students compete in debate competitions when they are ready to represent the school.
