Dramatic debating draw

On Tuesday night Lucan Community College hosted Stepaside Educate Together Secondary School in the Concern Debates.

The dramatic debate resulted in a draw – usually unheard of in a debating competition.

The two teams debated on the motion ‘30 years later, the world is no closer to ending the global HIV and AIDS epidemic’.

After the two teams battled it out on topics such as lack of education surrounding HIV/AIDS, stigma, the expensive of HIV medication, the adjudicators retired to deliberate on the result.

The Chief Adjudicator for Concern in announcing the result noted that it was the first time he had ever rewarded a draw as a result in a debate, such was the quality of the argument from both teams.

Congratulations to both teams.

We are delighted to announce the winners of our Reading Week Poster Competition for 2023. The standard of talent and creativity was outstanding. Well done to everyone who entered a poster. The overall winners are Ellen Birnie (Junior) and Naoise Murphy (Senior). Congratulations!
