Debating Trials.

We held a debate in the GP room to decide on our team for the upcoming debating competition, run by Monaghan Education Centre.
37 pupils participated, arguing for or against the motion that children should be allowed to have mobile phones.
We were very impressed with the preparation the children put into their talks, as well as their confident delivery.

6 pupils were chosen to represent our school. Well done to James, Brianna, Joanne, Aisling, Regina and Callum. 
Their first round debate takes place this Wednesday v's Baileboro.

4th and 5th class are starting some research on Cavan, its geography, history, people, music and culture.
We are learning "The Gallant John Joe", which is about the captain of 2 Cavan All-Ireland winning teams in the 1940s.
Deirbhile brought in some books about Cavan football that have lots of references to that team.
