This year there is a Junior debating team entering the Gael- Linn debates. This is a very high- level debating competition and we wish our third years well.

French Debates

Alliance Francaise
Once again, Mount Temple has entered a team in the Alliance Francaise debating competition. This year’s team consists of Shelley Carlyle (Capt.), Danny Bowles, Adam Thakore, Esmay Murray and Aoife Leonard. The team beat Loreto Foxrock in the opening round on Monday 3rd October and Shelley Carlyle won the award for best speaker. The subject for debate was that “Il faut abolir l’annee de transition” with Mount Temple speaking against the motion. The second round will take place on Monday November 14th. All supporters very welcome.

A new departure this year is our inter-class debating competition, the first of which will take place on Thursday 28th October between Ms McHardy’s fifth year class and Ms. O’Connell’s sixth years. The theme is “Les années scolaires sont les meilleures années de la vie”.
