Under the stewardship of Ms King our school debating team entered the National Concern Debating tournament this year for the first time. Our team of George Joy. Rayaan Qureshi and Avea O’Mara had the job of convincing our judges that the answer to getting people to recycle was by fining them. Against our opposition on the day, Scoil Mhichil Naofa we found the motion difficult to uphold and a competent opposition convinced the judges that education is a better solution than fining. It was a great opportunity for all involved and we look forward to our next day out as we participate in the Shield competition.
