The motion was 'Le droit de vote devrait être accordé dès l'âge de 16 ans' (The right to vote should be accorded from the age of 16' and we (Yoan, Kishaylin, Caoimhe and Carrie) had to argue against it. Belvedere College were excellent and definitely deserved their victory. However I was still very impressed at their courage for taking part in the first place (including Yoan, who only started French in TY) and trying to rebut the other team right from the start.
This is the first time that I have picked 5th years to enter so I am hoping that they will have gained a lot of experience for next year!
