RCS Speech， Debate and Writing Youth Club
In 2018, Ray Chinese School started a speech club organized by a group of local high schoolers. At the same time, the school supported multiple debate events organized by the local debate club led by high school students.
In 2019, RCS Youth Speech and Debate Club were formally founded, which includes both speech and debate activities. Since then, the club has organized multiple events led by local high school students.
In 2022, as the club has assisted Pacifica-Ray Chinese School's creative writing event, the club has included writing in its activities.
The club is always open to high schoolers who are interested in speech, debate, and creative writing. If you are interested, please contact the following emails:
