Debate June

Inter-School Debating June 2019

For our end of year public speaking event in June 2019, our 6th class competed against Curraghboy NS. The motion was proposed by Curraghboy NS and opposed by Cloonakilla NS, who hosted the event. Parents, teachers and pupils from both schools attended to support the speakers and it was a very enjoyable afternoon. It was a robust debate and both teams demonstrated excellent public speaking skills and delivered their speeches in a very eloquent manner. Marguerite Quinlan, Deputy Principal of Colaiste Chiarain was the neutral adjudicator on the day, and she was very impressed by the high standard of public speaking and research compiled by the children. The motion was defeated and Cloonakilla were victorious on the day. Well done to all involved and enjoy the well-deserved summer break!
