School qualifies for debating competition semi-final

The inaugural Donegal Primary Schools Debating League began recently with Scoil Cholmcille, Kilmacrennan taking on Scoil Náisiunta Glassan in the first round of the competition. The standard of debating was of an extremely high nature with Kilmacrennan N.S. finally winning out. Kilmacrennan N.S. proposed the motion that school uniforms were a good idea while the students of Glassan argued against the motion.   Many thanks also to the judges on the day, Mr Michéal Murray and Mr Cathal Greene for their time and expertise.

The second round of the Concern/ Donegal Education Centre debating competition took place in Fintown recently.  The opposition were Drimnacrosh school, from near Glenties.  There was a high standard of public speaking evident on the day.  Kilmacrennan won out by the narrowest of margins, successfully shooting down the notion that social media is making us anti-social.

Kilmacrennan School were pitted against Drummand N.S. in round three of the competition. Our school carried the motion that Televisions should be allowed in children’s bedrooms and we have now qualified for the semi-final stage of the all-county competition
