Debating has a long and noble tradition in the Loreto ethos.  We believe participation in debating fosters critical thinking, confidence, excellence in public speaking, research skills, competitive spirit and empathy - because you have to understand both perspectives on the motion. 

Loreto Schools host their own Inter-Loreto debates annually, where students from all Loreto schools meet to debate each other formally, in a Mace format.  Our Junior and Senior debators compete regularly on the University schools'  debating circuit against students from other schools in Leinster.  The Debating Society meets every Tuesday at lunch-time in Room A1 for rousing debates on topical and timeless motions.  All students are welcome to join the Society
