In October 2012 4 5th year students volunteered to take part in the Concern Debates for schools. The debates were divided into 2 parts, the speeches and the debates. Students Mark Calthrop, Lily Dineen, Mairead Twohig and Sean Brophy, with support and guidance from Ms. O'Doherty and Ms. Loughnane, attended 2 debates and a speech competition. Although the students did not reach the finals, Mark Calthrop was chosen by the adjudicators as the best speaker during their final debate.
Congratulations to Mark and well done to our debating team for their efforts this year!
