Debating and Public Speaking

A public speaking module is taken by all students in first, second and third year.  Students compete for the annual Silver and Gold medal public speaking competitions. Students also represent the College at regional and national level in German and Gaeilge Team Debating competitions, plus are also encouraged to present for external academy examinations. Debating provides opportunities for public oratory, building self-confidence and promoting teamwork amongst students.
