Donald Dewar Debating Competition

Huge congratulations to our debaters Grant Mackin and Christopher Wilson on another outstanding display in this prestigious competition, held in Kilsyth Academy.

The boys were drawn against the first of Kilsyth Academy’s two teams, arguing against the motion: “This House would ban Referendums.” Kilsyth’s second team then debated with St Maurice’s Academy on the same motion. The judges were very impressed with all four teams, making clear that the standard of debating on display was far in excess of that normally seen in a first round heat.

After deliberation, the teams from Our Lady’s and St Maurice’s progressed to the second round of this national competition. Well done boys! #pollitolhs
