Students looking to cultivate their public speaking skills have flocked to debating again this year, with 22 eager debaters from 4th, 5th and 6th year already signed up for the Leinster Schools debating competition.
In the coming weeks students will be debating the economic and social worth of the so-called “gig economy” (Air BnB, Uber, Deliveroo etc.), the location of social housing, unionising the armed forces and the issue of banning hate groups (KKK, Neo-Nazis etc.).
Debating is great for those who wish to hone their communication skills and is particularly useful to students who may be anxious over public speaking.
The debating class offers an inclusive and encouraging environment for students to try out speaking to their peers, as well as mock debates and light-hearted public speaking challenges.
Any student who wishes to take part but has not yet joined is more than welcome to come along.
Debating takes place every Friday at 2.30pm in room G-3 and all 4th, 5th and 6th year students in our full time senior school are welcome to attend.
