Junior Debating

National Junior Mace Debating Competition

Our Junior Debating team attended the National Junior Mace Debating Competition last Saturday (28 January) which was held in UCD, with eighty teams from all over Ireland competing.   

Congratulations to Second Year students Hanna Berhanu and Finn O'Donnaill who qualified to be one of six teams representing Ireland at the International Competition for Young Debaters happening in Cambridge over the weekend of the 30 April.  This is the world's largest British Parliamentary Junior Debating Competition meaning Hanna and Finn will be competing against teams from all over the world.  Separately, Finn came joint 8th Place in the Individual Speakers section!

Well done to Third Year students Isabel Jordan-Beristain and Elizabeth Manzocchi who also competed and thank you to TY students Elsie Bath, Amelia Hoggett, Amy Rabbette and Aylin Ustuner who attended and helped on the day.
