Debating at Gaelcholáiste Chomáin enables our students to voice their opinions freely and dynamically.Students have taken part in debating throughout the years at a local level and at a national level as well as In School Debates. Debating enhances the student on many levels. Listening to different perspectives in a neutral manner not only helps students advance their side of the motion, it inevitably increases their tolerance and understanding of other views and beliefs. Competitive debate sharpens one’s ability to research and analyse problems, think and listen critically and express thoughts clearly and fluently. It increases a student’s confidence and poise.
