(All 6th Year) who represented Blackrock in the first Round of the French Debating Competition Les Joutes Oratoires organised by the Alliance Française on Wednesday 14th October, 2015. Marcus won the Best Speaker Award.
The team successfully opposed the Motion that:
“L’Education Physique et Sportive (EPS) devrait être évaluée au Leaving Cert”
(PE should be a Leaving Certificate Exam subject) against Presentation School Terenure.
We wish them luck as they progress to the next Round.
in the ANNUAL VOCAB EXPRESS ONLINE LANGUAGE COMPETITION Transition Year (students of French) finished in 7th Place out of a total of 60 schools in the UK and beyond. Josh Garvey and Conor Williams (both Transition Year) fought a tremendous Online Vocab Battle and finished in 1st and 2nd Place in the College and a remarkable 10th and 11th Place respectively out of the international total of 7,000 students. An excellent effort all ‘round.
I thank Ms Dobbyn for her organisation of this opportunity.
