French Debating 2014

Pour la 3eme fois de suite, l’équipe de débats de Loreto College s’est présentée à la Bibliothèque Nationale pour la Finale des Joutes oratoires organisées par l’Alliance Française.

Loreto won the Final round of debates in 2012, and again this year, against King’s Hospital, after an impressive and heated debate on the topic of Emigration.

Félicitations à toute l’équipe: Ellen Kelly ( 5th year, Captain ), Anna Rose Fullen and Jessica Fitzpatrick ( 6th year ) , Aoife Gunning ( 5th year ), Tillie Keogh ( active sub, 6th year ) and Mme Soudry (coordinator )

All the best speakers of the tournament (including Ellen Kelly and Anna Rose Fullen) received their trophies, before the results were announced and the Loreto team was presented with the cup.

Ellen Kelly is now part of the national team, due to debate against French students in Paris in January 2015. Nous lui souhaitons bonne chance!
