Debating in Maynooth

Debating has been a popular feature of extra-curricular activities in Maynooth Education Campus for the last number of years and is always a great place to learn to argue competitively!!

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 MEC, the Junior Team and the Senior Team. The Junior Team are taking part in multiple competitions each year, in teams of two. The Senior Team are mainly focused on the Concern Debates programme.

The students 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.

The next round of in-house debates will begin after the midterm break. Come find Ms Lohan in the library or check out the edmodo group (code on the library door!) for more information!
