Congratulations to our Senior Public Speaking team Calvin Connolly, Sara Marques and Daniel Hannon on an outstanding performance at the All Ireland Finals of the Knights of Columbanus Public Speaking Competition which took place on Saturday, 11th March at the National University of Ireland, Maynooth. Calvin, Daniel and Sara have been fine ambassadors for our school in this prestigious competition, where students participate in discourse on a range of topics covering issues such as Young Christians, Life and Family Issues, Living the Christian Life, Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation. With guidance from their coach, Ms. Siobhan Cullen, the students conduct research on the topic at hand, and upon gathering supporting evidence from scripture, papal encyclicals, and church teaching, they make their presentations to a panel of nationally selected judges. After a tightly fought contest however the coveted prize went to St. Louis Grammar School, Kilkeel, Co. Down and the runners-up prize went to the Ursuline Convent in Thurles. An enjoyable day was had by all and gratitude is expressed to the family members and supporters who travelled to NUI Maynooth on the day. Well done to all concerned.

Following on from our recent success in NUI Maynooth and at the HCI Debating Championship at Sligo Grammar School, we would like to wish Michael Lough the very best of luck as he prepares to represent his province at the National Finals of the Matheson Junior Debating Mace at Belvedere College in Dublin on Saturday, March 25th. After a tough competition, Michael progressed to the Nationals from the Connacht Final which was held in Colaiste Iognaid and was hosted by the Literary  and Debating Society from NUIG. We wish the very best of luck to Michael as he makes his preparations for what is sure to be a marathon day of debating.
