We had our first debate this year against Our Lady’s of Mercy Convent Booterstown. The motion for this debate was “homework is a waste of time”. Our Lady’s of Mercy Convent travelled to Francis St. In attendance watching was Mr. Doyle’s 5th class and Mr. Goggin’s 6th class . Past pupil Seán O’Connor was in attendance to adjudicate our debate. It was a very enjoyable debate with some very interesting arguments. It was a very close result coming down to a single point between the teams with Our lady’s of Mercy pipping the Franner boy’s at the post.
