This year the Juniors are going to enter the Concern debating competition, organised by Ms O’Neill and meeting on Thursdays at lunch time.

Senior debaters meet on Mondays at lunch time in the Library. This year teams have entered the Mace competition in UCD, Concern debates and the Leinster School Debating Competition run by UCD and Trinity Colleges. Please contact Ms McFadden or Ms Cullen for more details. We have also sent students to the European Youth Parliament. 

The skills learned in debating are of tremendous help in many areas of life.  The length of the speech varies with each style of debate. Concern debates do not allow interuptions while the Leinster Schools Debating Competition allows Points of Information.
