Debating in Adelaide, South Australia

Welcome

Debating SA is South Australia’s premier debating organisation. We provide supportive and challenging opportunities for school students of all abilities to debate in an exceptionally well-run, friendly, and professional program that is challenging, enjoyable, and most of all, fun.

With over 1400 students from more than 60 member schools forming nearly 300 teams, we operate South Australia’s largest, most diverse and most comprehensive interschool debating competition, held from May to September each year.

Innovative and school-friendly, the association promotes debating as an activity that is accessible to all students.

Debating SA is delighted to receive the patronage of His Excellency The Honourable Hieu Van Le AC, Governor of South Australia.
