On Wednesday 29th November, the Lucan Community College Senior Debating team took part in the latest installment of this year’s Concern Debates. The senior debaters found themselves facing local rivals, St. Joseph’s College who proposed the motion; ‘China is Good For Africa’.
The Lucan Community College team opposed the motion with some fantastic speeches and rebuttals from our seasoned debaters Gayatri Sangra, Rhiannon Withero, Oisin O’Sullivan and our esteemed captain, Alex Healy.
Unfortunately, the motion was carried on the night giving the victory to a worthy team from St. Joseph’s College. The audience walked away from the debate having gained an invaluable insight into global development issues surrounding China’s involvement in the developing world.
It’s onwards and upward’s for the senior debaters as we take on Luttrellstown Community College on December 13th for our final debate before the new year.
