On Monday the 21st of January, both of the teams from Queen of the Universe debated the motion: ‘Irish youth are doing their fair share to end poverty in the developing world.’ The first team debated against Castlecomer NS and the second team debated against St.Aidan’s, Kilmanagh NS. The first team were proposing the motion and the second team were opposing the motion.
The captain of the proposition was Roisin from Queen of the Universe NS and the captain of the opposition was Molly from Castlecomer NS. The second speaker from Queen of the Universe was Emily and the second speaker from Castlecomer NSwas Tara. The third speaker from Queen of the Universe NS was Kaitlin and the third speaker from Castlecomer ns was Kayla. Both teams did very well and it was extremely close for both teams but the ones who came out on top were Castlecomer NS.
Next up were Queen of the Universe’s opposing team against St. Aidan’s NS. The captain of the proposition was Amy from St. Aidan’s and the captain from the opposition was Sophia from Queen of the Universe NS. The second speaker from St. Aidan’s was Molly and the second speaker from Queen of the Universe ns was Patty. The third speaker from St. Aidan’s was Frank and the third speaker from Queen of the Universe was Mia. As well, both teams were excellent but the ones that came out on top this time were our very own; Queen of the Universe NS!
