Unfortunately, the debating team narrowly lost out to Clerihan last Tuesday 14th February, and so their journey ends. As a group they worked very hard preparing their arguments and gave it their best effort.
Next round of the debating competition will take place in Clerihan National School on Friday 10th February, the team are very busy preparing.
After their winning start the debating team are busy preparing for the next round of the Concern Primary Debating Inter-Schools Competition.
Congratulations to the Debating team who got off to a winning start, charming the adjudicators with their oratorical skills in the process.
A big well done to Keelan, Erin, Ava, Michaela, Genevieve and Megan.

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.
