Cambridge Debates

TY students Darragh O’Donohoe and Paraic O’Reilly have just returned from a wonderful weekend’s debating at Cambridge University where they competed against some of the top debaters in the world. The format of this competition required the boys to produce a five minute speech in just fifteen minutes preparation time on motions such as “This house would remove soldier’s ability to feel fear if the technology existed to do so” and “This house would forbid religious leaders from involving themselves in politics”. A team from Vancouver were the eventual winners with other teams taking part from Hong Kong, Eton and our neighbours the Jes. Well done to Darragh and Paraic who did themselves, their school and their province proud.
