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.
