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
Enriching the lives and the educational experience of our students.
