Established as a charity in 1992, the Bermuda Debate Society (registered charity no. 325) endeavors to inspire students through and promote the art of debate in Bermuda’s schools. Since it’s founding the Society has successfully hosted debate tournaments annually, hosted international tournaments, fielded teams for international tournaments, and hosted events to promote debate throughout the island.
For centuries debate has proven to be an effective tool for communication, collaboration, and the exchanging of ideas. In a modern context, debate provides an arena for expression, thought, and for students to develop critical skills that will benefit them throughout life. In this vein, we are excited about engaging Bermuda’s students through debate and equipping the next generation of leaders with the skills to succeed.Nikki-Lynn Marshall
