Comhghairdeas le foirne díospóireachta Gaeilge na scoile a ghlac páirt sa chéad babtha den comórtas Gael Linn an seachtain seo.  Ba choir go mbeidís an bhródúil astu féin. Éacht iontach ab ea é bheith páirteach sa chomórtas seo.  Mí Ádh don fhoireann sinsearach nár éirigh dul ar aghaidh agus go n-éirí leis an bhfoireann Sóisearach go háirithe a bhuaigh in aghaidh Coláiste na nDoiminceánach atá ag dul ar aghaidh don céad babtha eile.

Foireann Sóiearach : Jordan Hartnett, Alex Healy, Matthew O’Donnell (Junior)

Foireann Sínearach :  Amy Cassidy, Orla Beagan, Jenny Bowler (Senior)

Congratulations to our Irish debating teams who took part in the first round of the Gael Linn Competition recently.  They should be extremely proud of themselves.  It was a great achievement to take part. Hard luck to our senior team who did not go through to the next round and the very best of luck to our junior team who beat the Dominican College, Sion Hill to go through to the next level.

The Speech

DSC00042-1Three of our First year Junior Debating students entered into the Matheson Junior Debating competition The Speech. Each student had to make a video recreating a famous speech from history or film that was then uploaded onto Facebook where students would progress by public vote.

1st Year – Darragh - The Kings Speech
1st Year – Alex - The Hunger Games (400+votes)
1st Year – Gayatri - Helen Keller

Gayatri narrowly lost out on the 3rd finalist position. Alex and Darragh are two of three Junior Finalists. Students videos are currently before a panel of film and oratorical experts who will choose the overall winner.
