Debating at Dominican College, Griffith Avenue
Dominican College is delighted that its three teams (led by Ms. Sandra Donohoe, assisted by Ms. Patricia Healy) reached the quarter-finals of the UCD Junior Schools Debating Competition. Throughout the competition, they have tackled issues ranging from the death penalty, to the rights of a minor, to feminism. The students have been committed since last September and everyone at Dominican College is extremely proud of all students involved in creating such a successful debating team.
On March 23rd, Dearbhla Lawlor, a 2nd year student from Dominican College, Griffith Avenue, took her place in the UCD Law & History Junior Debating Final after successfully fending off competition from students in over 100 schools in Leinster. While it wasn’t the outcome we hoped for, we are all immensely proud of Dearbhla’s outstanding achievement. (An extract written by Patricia Healy for Maynooth University's Education Newsletter)
