Junior Debating in Cambridge
Saturday, 27th April 2019
Ben Kieran-Glennon and Alec Linklater (both 2nd Year) represented Ireland at the ICYD Debating Competition in Cambridge.
There were 4 qualifying rounds, a Semi-Final and a Final:
|This House Would ban developed countries from hiring doctors from developing countries.|
|This House Supports the School Strike for Climate.|
|This House Would pay reparations for the Atlantic slave trade.|
|In countries where compulsory military service for men exists, This House Believes that feminists should advocate for the conscription of women.|
|Semi-Final:||This House would teach children that wealth is a source of shame.|
|Final:||This House would prefer a world without religious or spiritual beliefs.|
This was a global event composed of 48 teams. There were 4 teams from Ireland: Blackrock College, Colaiste na hInse, Scoil Mhuire and Colaiste Iognaid.
I thank Ms Pierce for her preparation of the boys and phenomenal commitment to Debating.
