AIJS Debating Competition

AIJS Debating Competition
6th Class win the shield
Wednesday, May 2, 2018 (All day)

Two teams from 6th Class travelled to St. Conleth’s College on Wednesday to take part in the AIJS Debating Competition. There were ten teams taking part from other independent schools. Both teams met reigning champions, Alexandra College in the first round and Wicklow Montessori and St. Conleth’s in the next round. Loreto were victorious in all debates. The girls presented animated arguments and persuaded and cross examined skilfully.

At the prize giving we received awards for winning our debates and Maia and Grace L won best speakers. The adjudicators retired to discuss the best overall school and the tension in the room was palpable. We were absolutely delighted when it was announced that we were the overall winners of the entire competition. We received numerous medals and the AIJS Debating Shield.
Congratulations to Grace L, Tara , Clodagh, Maia  Eva  and Grace F.....The people in high office in Kildare Street better keep an eye out for our potential politicians of the future......
