JES STUDENTS ARE WORLD CLASS SPEAKERS

Treading in the footsteps of Winston Churchill, the Dalai Lama, Johnny Depp and Russell Brand, young Coláiste Iognáid debaters engaged in a mammoth debating competition at the Cambridge Union on  Saturday. The Galway pupils represented Ireland in the 2017 International Competition for Young Debaters in Cambridge at the world famous Union. Having qualified in the top 80 young speakers in the world, the ‘Jes’ debaters faced competition from pupils of all nationalities on the Finals Day in Cambridge. All debaters were 15 years old and under.  Eventually, the Grand Final saw India defeat the UK and Canada.
