Oral language and pupil’s ability to express themselves are vital elements of the primary school curriculum. In addition to our school focus on speech and drama, plays, theatre workshops and concerts we at Scoil Naomh Fiachra place a great emphasis on persuasive or debating particularly among our senior classes in preparation for secondary level. Our debating team comprises of 7 pupils selected from our sixth classes. These pupils participated in an in-depth school selection process to become part of the final team who would go on to represent our school in the Primary Inter-Schools Debating League. We are looking forward to some very informative and lively discussions in the weeks to come with other schools in our area.
