Thursday the 29th of November saw Gowran National School take on Rahealty National School from Tipperary in the Concern Primary Debating knock-out round. The debate was held in the Kilkenny Education Centre. The team for this round was Mikey Keating (Captain), Katie Scriven (2nd Speaker), Billy O'Keeffe (Final Speaker) and James Fenlon as Chairperson.
After the intense debate the adjudicators stepped out of the room to make their decision whilst the teams waited nervously for the announcement.
In the end the adjudicators finally came to a decision. It was an extremely close contest but thankfully our school came out on top. We were delighted, and our team will advance to the next stage of competition in January.
