Recent Public Speaking and Debating Achievements

We are very pleased to have an active Senior Debating Team who recently won a challenging debate against CBS Portlaoise. Congratulations to Aine Conroy (Captain), Emma Comerford, Daniel Comerford and Suaad Alshelh. Congratulations to Suaad who won best individual speaker on the night.

In October, nine of our students participated in the Regional Soapbox Public Speaking Competition in Mountmellick Library on the topic “Brexit: Ireland’s Opportunity”. Well done to Emma Comerford (5th year) who won the competition and went on to represent this region nationally in Royal Hospital Kilmainham this November.
