Our 11th class Concern team has come to the end of the debating road; they lost their quarter final on 19th March to Largy College in an excellent and close debate.
It was a wonderful achievement to reach the last 8 teams in the national competition. Mr Callan and I were immensely proud of the team who were wonderful ambassadors for St. Kilian’s: captained by Daniela, her teammates Nora, Gabriel, Luka, Gregory and Gregor, displayed all the finest skills of debate.
A special thank you to Leah and Isabel of last year’s winning team who chaired and timed the debate on the evening. Thanks also to Oscar and Siddarth for their support and encouragement.
We look forward to Leah, Isabel, Oscar, Aisling and Siddarth giving their presentation on their prize-winning trip to Kenya at the final of the competition on the 1st of May in the Helix Theatre.
We wish Largy College every success in the semi-final.
Linda Golden, Debating Coordinator
