DETSS Round One Debating Team Success

On Thursday 11th November Kaori Hirot, Fiona Pardina, Anna McArdle and Stephanie Sludds, with Timmi Maza acting as timekeeper took part in the first round of the Educate Together Debating Competition against a team from Gorey Educate Together. DETSS students had been preparing for the round with practice debating sessions after school, and at lunch times coming up with reasons for and against different motions leading up to the First Round.

DETSS are one of four groups in the league stages, competing in 3 more school debates in the first round. The two top teams from each group will progress to the quarter-finals where the competition enters a knock-out stage through to the final.

Debate topics include social media, online learning, freedom of the press and compulsory vaccinations. The competition promotes debating in schools and creates opportunities for students across the network to develop articulation, confidence and team work skills.

A huge congratulations to the Drogheda ETSS Debating Team who have won their first round against Gorey ETSS in the Educate Together Debating Competition.

Best of luck to our students in the next debate.
