Registration for the Concern Debates is now open.
For more information on next year's programme, please contact [email protected].
If you need any more convincing why you, your pupils or your children should take part in the Concern Debates, here are just some of the skills that previous participants have said they gained from debating:
Learn to speak in public and in front of peers
Develop cognitive and language abilities, as well as skills in research and debating
Gain a deeper understanding of the global issues affecting millions of people
If you like what you’ve heard so far, please sign up below and a Concern member of staff will be in touch with further information.
New to Debating? Not sure how to structure your speech and gain top marks? Check out the students from Portmarnock Community School below and see our full playlist here.
Each video highlights where the students are getting marked and are a good introduction to get acquainted with the marking sheet.
