Laois Primary Debating Championships October 2019 6th Class Ballyadams. vs Shanahoe.
Our 6th claimed honors in the opening round of the Laois Regional Debating Championships Wednesday 9th October. Team Captain Timmy Byrne and speakers Abby O'Brien & Anna Delahunt successfully opposed the motion 'Homework is a waste of time' versus Shanahoe N.S. It was a delight to welcome Principal Richie Connor and his 5th & 6th Class to Ballyadams. Both classes showed tremendous preparation and organisation and Head Judge Padraig Ashe complemented both schools for the quality of their debating skills. In Ballyadams fashion we welcomed our guests and celebrated with a healthy mix of melon, water melon and pineapple chunks. Thanks to Ms Holden for preparing the class for the debate and we are eagerly looking forward to the next round.
