Activity Overview 

Junior Debating aims to promote and encourage the skills of public speaking as well as critical and logical thinking and argument amongst 1st to 3rd Form students. A weekly debate is held where a wide range of local and global topics and issues are discussed. Debate motions are often proposed by the students themselves.

First Year and Junior Cycle 

The Junior Debating Club meets in the library every Monday lunchtime from 12.55 – 13.15. All 1st, 2nd and 3rd years are welcome to attend either to participate or to observe.

Debaters are encouraged to participate in inter-schools debate competitions throughout the year.
