Junior Debating

Congratulations to all our 2nd year students who participated in the recent debating competition which took place here in school.  Our girls took on Ardscoil Rís and Ardscoil Mhuire.  One of the teams, Órlaith Ní Uiginn, Clodagh Ní Eachanna and Danielle Ní Ruanaidh, have progressed to the next round in January, with Órlaith Ní Uiginn being nominated “Best Speaker” on the day.  On the other team were Zuzanna Witomska, Deirdre Ní Naíonáin and Ellie Ní Chearmada, who did us proud.  Deirdre was nominated “Best Speaker” in that debate.  Well done to all who took part or indeed helped out on the day and a huge “Míle buíochas” to Ms. Chapple for giving so willingly of her time at this very busy time of year.

Vótáil 100 don Seanad

Monica Ní Thoráin, Solas, had a great win recently when she was one of four Transition Year students chosen from Munster to be part of the final 16 who will debate in the Seanad in April.  The debate is part of a programme of cultural events taking place in 2018 to mark a century since women in Ireland were first given the right to vote and run in parliamentary elections.

Felicidades, Bliain 5!

Rud nua dúinne ar fad anseo i LHC a bhí ar bun ag Bl. 5 le déanaí, faoi stiúr a múinteora Spáinnise – In. Ní Chonchúir – nuair a thug siad faoi dhíospóireacht scoile trí mheán na Spáinnise don chéad uair.  Thaisteal na cailíní, Eimear de Faoite, Siobhán Ní Dhúbháin, Hayley Ní Ghabháin agus Lauren Ní Ghábháinn go Trá Lí ar an Máirt le h-In. Ní Chonchúir agus fuaireadar taithí den scoth agus bhain siad an-taitneamh as an tráthnóna. Beidh an chéad bhabhta eile den tsraith anseo i Luimneach, i bPailís Chaonraí agus tá na cailíní ag súil go mór leis an dúshlán cheana féin.  Go n-éirí go geal libh!

Bua na Díospóireachta!

Comhghairdeas ó chroí lenár bhfoireann díospóireachta sinsearach a fuair an ceann is fearr aréir ar Laurel Hill Secondary School sa bhabhta deireanach de Dhíospóireachtaí Concern Réigiúnacha.  Bhí Cathy Ní Thuathail (Captaen), Melanie Ní Dh0mhnaill, Áine Nic Caochlaoich, Anna Van Nieuwenhove, ag argóint in aghaidh an rúin “The UN should be disbanded” agus ba dhíospóireacht theann den scoth í.  Buíochas ollmhór tuillte ag In. Ní Dhuinín as bheith chomh fial, flaithiúil lena cuid ama agus gan amhras míle buíochas leis na múinteoirí eile a chabhraigh.
