Students are provided in advance of the topics they are to debate, and must research the policies and opinions of their “adopted” country, which may well be, and often are, very different to those held by the students or of contemporary Australia. Students are encouraged to make sympathetic and informed comments on world issues.
Students are encouraged to dress in the style of their adopted country, and do so with great imagination.
