Debating Team qualifies for County Final

Congratulations to our school debating team who have eloquently argued their way into the County Donegal Primary School Final.  Eighteen schools entered the competition but has now been whittled down to two teams.

The sixth class team are eagerly looking forward to meeting St Aengus’ NS, Bridgend in the final later in the term.
