Quarter-Finals of the debates

A big congratulations to all the teams who participated in the first rounds of the debates. These events are nerve-wracking for the students and it is amazing to see how well they do when dealing with controversial topics in a foreign language under pressure.

A huge thank you also to all of the teachers supporting their own teams and doing the judging, and particularly the people who came to judge without having a team debating – it is hugely appreciated!

One of the topics in the group rounds had to do with emigration.

So, without any further ado, here are the teams who have made it through to the quarter-finals. The date and motion are yet to be decided.

Mt. Anville v Templeogue
Dominicans v Castleknock College
Mac Dara’s v St. Wolstan’s
King’s Hospital v Loreto Beaufort

Best of luck to all!
