Debating in Maynooth

Debating has been a popular feature of extra-curricular activities in Maynooth Post Primary for a number of years and is always a great place to learn to argue competitively and fairly!!

Debating provides students with skills that will last their entire life. It encourages students to discuss, defend and decide their opinions on specific topics and challenges them to think outside of the box!

There are two main teams for debating in MPP, the Junior Team and the Senior Team. Each team is involved in a variety of competitions and both teams have had great success over the last number of years and hopefully this will continue.

Debating provides a lot of opportunity for students to develop their academic writing, but outside of academics, it is an excellent place to make new friends, to grow in confidence and happiness. As more subjects now include an oral presentation element, debating is a great place to help you find your feet.

If you are interested in developing your public speaking skills, please don't hesitate to find Ms Lohan.
