Congratulations to our Senior Debating Team in their recent victory over Colaiste Cois Life in the first of this year’s Concern Debates. The team included Gayatri Sangra, Alex Healy, Oisin O’Sullivan and was captained by Blaithnáid Henry.
Lucan Community College proposed the motion ‘For women to access leadership positions, gender quotas must be implemented’ and had a unanimous victory over the opposition. The adjudicators commended both teams on their research and knowledge of global issues and were impressed by the passionate and skillful oration skills of both teams.
The debate was chaired by senior debator, Matthew Graham and Ms. Monahan was our dutiful timekeeper. The team are currently in preparation for their next debate against Luttrellstown Community College after the midterm break on the 14th of November.
Thanks to all involved and particularly to Ms Mulhern who has put so much time into helping the debating team since September.
