There is the option to pay for 4 sessions. The first session included is a free trial.
Debating is for all: those who love to talk will learn about listening with an open mind and a child who is shy will be nurtured to find their voice and express their opinion. Taught by a qualified Primary School teacher and Private Tutor, groups are limited to 5 children to maximise individual attention.
