Debating

Ms. Costigans and Ms. O Neills 6th classes participated in Primary School Debating this year. This was done in conjunction with Kilkenny Education Centre and Concern.

They met many schools along the way including The Presentation, St John’s, Móin Ruadh and the Model School. The girls had many motions to prepare eg. Climate change cannot be stopped, Conserving water is not an important issue for Ireland, and School uniforms are a good idea.

The girls excelled at debating and did themselves and their school proud. They succeeded in getting to the semi final which was no easy achievement. We congratulate them for all the energy and time which  they put into preparing for their debates. Debating is a great skill and the debaters and their classmates benefited hugely from the experience.
