Yesterday our debating team took part in the Concern’s Primary Schools Debate against Balinora NS. We opposed the motion “People should be fined for not recycling”. After a very closely fought contest the motion was carried and Balinora School declared the winners. The 3 speakers, Hannah Lucey, James Fairtlough and Bríd Hegarty were highly praised by the judges for their excellent speeches and arguments and James was awarded the overall best speaker in the debate. The debating team also included Gráinne O’Sullivan, Faye Mulready and Grace Murphy. Well done to all!
