Concern Debates 2006/07

Started in 1984, the Concern Debates is Ireland's longest running Secondary School debates competition. The aim of Concern Debates is to promote awareness and understanding of global issues that impact on the lives of millions of people living in the developing world. The competition provides students with a public forum to develop skills in research, presentation, and debate. It also encourages students and teachers to become lifelong advocates on issues relating to poverty, justice and human rights.

Dominican College students have thoroughly enjoyed participating in this year's series of debates. It has been a rewarding and enriching experience for each student.

Congratulations to the teams that have reached the semi-finals 2006/2007.
