NORTHERN IRELAND SCHOOLS’ DEBATING COMPETITION

Posted on

Our Debating team of Jack Golden and Conor Callaghan competed in the semi-final of the Northern Ireland Schools’ Debating Competition on Tuesday 21st March against a team from St Louis’ Grammar School, Ballymena.

While both teams had prior notice of the motion for debate, we were only told on the day which side we would be required to argue.  We were asked to propose the motion: “This House agrees with the populist view that our liberal elites have lost legitimacy by ignoring the fears and aspirations of ordinary people.”  We were delighted that the panel of judges decided that we should progress to the final of the competition against Bangor Grammar School on Friday 28th April.
