6th Class Debating

posted 27 Apr 2015, 13:06 by Shane O'Neill

On Monday 20th April, everyone in 6th class took part in a debate against Askeaton NS. We had 4 motions to debate; 'Newspapers Are A Thing Of The Past, We Can’t End Poverty, We Should Have To Pay For Water and Soccer Players Get Paid Too Much'. It was a fantastic experience for all involved and everyone gave it a great shot. Both sides of the motions came up with some great arguments. Éimear and Megan were particularly singled out by the judges for their fantastic competence and confidence during their speeches. The crossfire round was intriguing to watch as both sides had plenty of questions to ask. Askeaton had home advantage, but that showed no difference as we were as just as good as them. This was our first ever debate and it was Askeaton's second. After all the debating, Askeaton treated us with some sweets. It was a lovely gesture after a great session of debating! We would like to thank Askeaton NS for welcoming us into their school for the debate. We all had a fantastic afternoon.
