Since 2016, Fifth and Sixth Classes have participated in internal and external debating competitions including the Concern Primary Schools’ Debating competition. In 2017/18, we debated against several schools in the Leinster area and our debaters advanced to the two semi-finals which unfortunately both teams narrowly lost. However we were extremely proud of our pupils.

Debating is continuing this school year, with school teams entering the Concern Primary Debating competition. We will update you on progress during the year.
