Debating Competition

A debate took place in the school today on the motion of ‘There should be an hour of exercise every day in school’. Ballyneale were opposing this motion.

Maeve, Oisín and Sarah were up against students from Rathgormack school who travelled to the school for the debate. By a very tight margin Rathgormack came out the winners and they now progress on to the second round of the debating competition.

Well done to all those involved. We hope it is an experience that they will benefit from.

Science with Comeragh College

Comeragh College students came in this week to teach science to the pupils of 5th and 6th class. They taught the pupils about the heart, mixing different liquids and showed them what happens when mentos are mixed with coca cola! The class enjoyed it immensely and thought the Comeragh College students would make excellent science teachers!
