Debates

Oral Language and pupils’ ability to express themselves clearly, with good articulation are essential elements of the primary curriculum. We place great emphasis on persuasive argument or debating, particularly in our senior classes. Our school is once more taking part in the Letterkenny Inter-Schools’ Debating League. This league was started in Letterkenny by our own Ms McGrath, four years ago and our debating skills are improving every year. This year, our team is made up of eight boys from 5th and 6th class. They are helped and encouraged by Mrs Cannon, Ms Mc Grath and class teachers, Mrs Dunleavy and Mrs Kavanagh. We are looking forward to some interesting and lively discussions on the proposed topics as we engage with all the local schools.

 

Meet our Team.
