Course Overview

This interactive, activity-based three-day program aims to introduce the concepts of public speaking and debating to middle primary students who haven’t been exposed to much public speaking and debating. The program itself focuses on providing students with the essential elements of both public speaking and debating theory, and plenty of opportunities to practice their skills.

By providing supportive experiences at a young age, we aim to set a good foundation of confidence and positivity in younger students. To this extent, class sizes are kept small to ensure that students are provided with a supportive environment where they are able to obtain individualised feedback from one of our experienced coaches.


Experience Levels

Our Koalas course is a beginner program.

It is designed for students with little (or even no) experience presenting in front of audiences, and is perfect for shy and confident students alike!

If your child has some speaking experience and you’re not sure whether the Koalas or Kangaroos (continuer) program is best for you, please get in touch and we’d be more than happy to discuss which is most appropriate for your child!


Main Objectives

Over the three days, students will enjoy:

  • learning the essential elements of public speaking theory;
  • a wide range of speaking-based activities, both as individuals and as part of small groups, which seek to make them more comfortable presenting to a class;
  • being exposed to the fundamentals of debating, giving them a leg up for later primary when debating begins to kick off at school; and
  • a positive, fun and welcoming environment for them to develop their newfound skills with confidence.


Should I repeat the Koalas Program?

If your child has already had a go at our Koalas course, they are welcome to come again, or alternatively if they are already 9 years’ old they are encouraged to join either our Public Speaking or Debating Hummingbirds programs!
