Debating

Our wonderful debating team at Blackrock Education Centre

Debating

We are all so proud of Ms. Cahill's 6th class students who entered the Primary School Debating competition this year for the first time ever.  What they lacked in debating experience however they more than made up for in talent and perseverance. They are like seasoned debating pros now! They are worked so hard throughout the year at their research, speeches, and debating skills and the hard work paid off.

They won the Blackrock Education Centre Debating Cup!!

They then went on to the Regional Finals where they were narrowly defeated and finished in 8th place in the country...wow!!  Congratulations girls.

Our junior and senior infants teacher Ms. O' Shea has been very generous with her time helping them every step of the way, and thank you also to the parents of the debating team who helped the girls research and prepare their speeches at home.

Hopefully these talented debaters will be given the opportunity to join a debating team when they go on to secondary school next year.
