A big congratulations to our 6th Class Debating Team, who yesterday won the 2016 Shield Final - making it the 2nd year in a row that Bushypark NS have won - a great achievement!!
The team members were Orlaith deBairéad (Captain), Hannah Fahy and Evan O'Connor along with substitutes Alex McWeeney, Conor Moran and Michael Reilly.
The event took place yesterday (Tuesday 1st March) in the Aula Maxima in NUIG in front of a large crowd. Orlaith, Hannah and Evan took on the boys from Oranmore Boys National School in opposing the motion "Ireland should leave the EU". The team have all worked very hard since October, and so their victory is well deserved and we are very proud of them! Well done guys!
Here are some photos from the day along with a video of the winning arguments.
