NEWS / 28 February 2022

Congratulations to our winning team 2X, the proposition, who passed the motion. Captained by Sonny who outlined their interpretation of the motion and his team mates (Ella and Bláthnáid) arguments. Sonny outlined his argument with an admirable intellectual rigour and authoritative tone that held his audience captive.

The opposition (the powerful Soma, the intellectual Tristan, and the very confident Francis ) were in mighty form too. Led by their captain Skye, each speaker outlined their position with vigour and passion. Each speaker took at least one point of information each off our audience. Many thanks to Liam who ensured that there was robust refutation of each debate.

The best speaker as chosen by two impartial judges from TY, Chris and Charlie was Francis. He was chosen for has ability to break done complex concepts into one word prompts on his debating cards. Well done to Francis and Ms Talbot. I look forward to working together with 2X with a view to debating on an inter school basis.

Ms Reynolds
