The new year always brings the business end of the country's top debating competitions and yet again the Coláiste's students are right in the mix. Our senior debaters are all in the second round of the Leinster Schools' Debating Competition at the end of the month and we would be hopeful that they will progress into the quarter finals. While our junior debaters are flying high - Chloe Clarke and Robert Phillips getting to the Octo Finals of the Junior Debating Competition in UCD, while Laragh Phillips, Aoife Forkin and Kyla Boyle have all qualified for the quarter finals. Opportunities to get to the Leinster Finals' Day of the largest debating competition in the country are all ahead for our juniors too. We look forward to updating you next month.
