The school's senior debating team got the year off to a great start on Thursday last (13th October) with a victory over Colaiste Phadraig CBS, Lucan in the first round of the Concern Debates competition. The team, comprising of Owen Hoelzle (captain), Jack O'Donohue, Saoirse Flattery and Mel Vincent Dela Cruz, successfully defeated the motion "Ending world hunger by 2030 is an impossible dream". Congratulations to all on defeating an excellent Colaiste Phadraig team on the night. The next debate will be held in Colaiste Chiarain on Monday 24th October at 8pm. This time the team will be proposing the motion which is "France should allow religious symbols in public institutions" with the opposition on the night coming from Salesian College, Celbridge. An interesting night awaits!
