Activities

Students have a great chance to become articulate, confident speakers through strong debating and public speaking programs in both the Junior and Senior schools. An after school club in the Junior School and workshops in the Middle School encourage students to develop skills and prepare them for competition. Interested students apply and are selected by Debating and Public Speaking Coaches to represent the School. CCGS has established and maintained an outstanding reputation in a wide range of intra and inter school, local and state wide Debating and Public Speaking competitions. Our 110 seat Lecture Theatre is a superb facility to host major public speaking events.
