The Hong Kong Schools Debating Council is the national representative for both the World Schools Debating Championship and the World Individuals Debating and Public Speaking Championships. We hold the authority for the selection processes for the Hong Kong teams for both tournaments and will ensure Team Hong Kong attends annually. In addition, HKSDC will also organise five local debating tournaments, two senior and two junior tournaments in the world schools debating style as well as one in the WIDPSC format.
The English Schools Foundation (ESF) has generously thrown its full support behind the formation of this new body. The ESF will provide venues for tournaments, and fund workshops to promote worlds style debating and to bring together the secondary schools debating community of Hong Kong Kong.
HKSDC runs five one-day tournaments annual including :
- The Senior Hong Kong Schools Debating Championship (Sr HKSDC)
- The Junior Hong Kong Schools Debating Championships (Jr HKSDC)
- The Hong Kong Public Speaking Championships (HKPSC)
HKSDC is the national body for both WSDC and WIDPSC. You can see the history of Team Hong Kong in the following competitions :
