Concern Primary Schools Debating Competition
Over the past number of years, Schools in the Sligo Education Centre catchment area have taken part in the Primary Debating Ireland National Project. Feedback has been extremely positive. Participants  compete with other schools on a league basis culminating with a local winner. The Local winners will go forward to a Regional final. This is an extremely worthwhile project and we would encourage you to consider participating.
Míle Buíochas to all the schools who have expressed an interest in participating in Concern Primary school debates 2018/19.
By now you will have received details from us on the schedule of debates.
Please contact us at  / 071 9138700 for support
