For the past three years, 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 in the 2018/19 school year, with school teams entering the Concern Primary Debating competition. We will update you on progress during the year.
