Debate Success

Related imageDebating is fun, noisy and a great way of airing different points of view! Last year, over 400 primary schools were involved in debates nationwide.  Fifth and sixth class from St Aengus took part this year for the first time, and have argued their way toward a place in the Donegal Final.  
From Sixth Class, Leo Doherty and from Fifth, Leahrose Davis, Allannah Curran, Rachel Bradley and John Mc Daid have presented themselves and their school with great success.
