Junior Schools’ Debating 2016

debatingOn Thursday 6th October seven students from firs t and second year attended the Leinster Junior Schools’ Debating Competition, which was held in UCD. They were debating the motion “This house would arm the Gardaí”. They faced very stiff competition from the other schools and unfortunately did not progress to the next round. However, all seven students received very positive feedback from the judges for their efforts and they enjoyed the experience of using their debating skills. The students should be very proud of their efforts and the experience that they gained which will be of great help to them in the future. Thanks to Ms. Martin and Mr. Fitzgerald for accompanying them on the night.
