On Wednesday 21st of November, St. Mary’s went to Glór na Mara school to debate the motion ‘Ireland Should Ban Cars.’
Glór na Mara were proposing and St. Mary’s were opposing the motion. This means that the St. Mary’s debating team were against banning cars. The St. Mary’s debating team on the day was Hollie, Isabella and Chloe. Supporting them were members of the debating club and other 6th class girls. Both teams spoke excellently and had good facts to back up their arguments. At the end of the debate, the judges went out to tot up the scores and the floor was opened up to everyone who had the chance to ask questions. When the judges reported back, they said it was a very close call but they went on to say that St. Mary’s had defeated the motion and won the debate. Well done to all involved.
