Karamu has a number of Debating teams entered in the inter-school competition at all levels.  This year we have three Year 9 teams, two Year 10 teams plus a Senior team.  There are opportunities for both prepared and impromptu debates run according to Russell McVeagh competition rules.  We are a strong Debating school.  Last year one of the Year 9 teams won the Junior Premier Grade.  This year one of our students, Alexandra Morris has been selected for the Regional Russell McVeagh Debating Team.
