Brief Description of CCA
In Debate, all members go through training on how to formulate and present arguments in response to assigned motions. Members will have opportunities to research for information and craft their speeches in a structured and persuasive manner. Debate practice sessions and competitions help our members to hone their skills.
In Drama, members are taught the core basics of dramatic technique – vocal projection, awareness of body language, facial expressions and use of space. Members get the opportunity to display what they have learnt through various school-based performances and competitions. Members are also exposed to a myriad of experiences such as script-writing and stage craft which includes making props or designing costumes.
