The Senior German Debating team participated in the debating competition run by the Goethe Institute. The first motion was based on the idea that ‘the school uniform is still in fashion’ and the girls debated again the Dominicans from Co. Wicklow. The girls proposed the motion and performed very well to win the debate. The second debate was against the Presentation College in Carlow. The motion was centred on the notion that ‘Science is just for men’. The Ursuline team proposed the motion but the motion was defeated. Well done to all those who participated.
