Activity Overview 

Junior Debating aims to promote and encourage the skills of public speaking as well as critical and logical thinking and argument among Form1 to 3 pupils. 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 pupils themselves.

First Year and Junior Cycle 

The Junior Debating Club meets in the library every Monday lunchtime from 12.55 – 13.15. All pupils in Forms 1 to 3 are welcome to attend either to participate or to observe. Debaters are encouraged to participate in inter-schools debate competitions throughout the year.
