Introduction

The Pioneer Debate Society is a close-knit fraternity with members who share a passion for using their wits and words to persuade and convince. With the Society’s motto of ‘Wits, Words, Will’ in mind, members are taught the art of debating, which hones their critical thinking and public speaking skills, and most of all, inspire confidence in themselves.


There are multiple competitions which are organised by various universities and junior colleges all year round, in which members are strongly encouraged to participate to pit their intellectual and public speaking skills against debaters from other institutions. Members are also highly encouraged to attend an adjudication course which certifies them to judge debates at the Singapore Secondary School Debating Championships.   


By the end of their journey in this Society, members would be able to tackle the world with a greater sense of empathy and understanding of how the world works, and with this, become better people of tomorrow.
