Spanish Debaters won Finals again!

Thu 18th Jan 2018

Update January 19th

After trojan work since September the Spanish Debating Team has won their national competition for the 4th time! The winning combination of captain David Kelly's decisive put downs, Tamara Kraus' meaningful personal account, Ben Buller's political acumen and Kate O'Malley's relentless rebuttal proved unbeatable, once again. Dave Shekleton and Emily Murphy's support and research were invaluable throughout the competition. The patience, effort and dedication of Ms Leahy and Ms Fitzgerald has paid off once again. Thanks to all who supported the journey.

Update December 6th

Fantastic news from the Spanish 🇪🇸 Debating team tonight 👏👏 looking forward to the finals in January.

Another amazing performance from the Spanish debating team who beat Loreto on the Green this evening in the semi-final of the competition. The team, ably captained by David Kelly, argued convincingly the ethics of eating meat, with Ben Buller worthily named best speaker on the night. Their teammates Kate O’Malley and Tamara Kraus were ruthless in their rebuttals and impressed judges with their delivery. Subs Emily Murphy and David Shekleton helped greatly with research and practice. The team now advance to the final in January which will be held in the Instituto Cervantes. Well done to all and many thanks to their teachers Amy Fitzgerald and Susan Leahy for all their time and guidance.

 

THe King's Hospital Spanish Debating team won the quarter final last night against St Olivers and will take on Loreto Green on Wednesday December 6th.
