The girls in 6th class had a heated debate this term. Our topics up for discussion were ‘Homework should be banned’ & ‘Every household should have a pet’. We had 4 teams & 2 judges participating. The girls are learning to speak in public and in front of their peers & developing cognitive and language abilities, as well as skills in research and debating. Our MVS (Most Valuable Speaker) awards voted by the children themselves went to Ava Mangan, Leanne Higgins & Mia Lynch. Everybody put in a great effort & spoke eloquently.
Above is a video link to the girls performance of ‘Amhrán na gCupán’ which they spent alot of time perfecting during the term & performed at a Tionól as part of our aim to gain the school a ‘Gaelbhratach’ flag this year. They did an outstanding job.
