The English Debating Team of Gaelscoil de hÍde have won the Midlands Final of the Concern Primary Debating Competition 2021. They were debating against Ballaghlea N.S. Co. Galway in the final. The motion for the final was 'The voting age should be reduced to 16' and Gaelscoil de hÍde were proposing the motion. The children have enjoyed this experience and become confident to speak in public and in front of peers. Best of luck in the National Finals.
The members of the Gaelscoil's panel:
Aoife Ní Chonghaile, Ciara de Búrca, Siobhán Ní Mhistéil, Racheal Ní Dhuinn, Aoife Nic Aonghusa, Charlie Nic Ghoilla Mhártain Ní hÉalaigh agus Cormac Pléimeann.
