CBC Win Leinster Debating Championships!
Congratulations to the CBC team of James O'Donoghue and Leon Reilly who on Saturday last, won the final of the Leinster Senior Debating Championships. The final was due to have been held last March and the Covid-19 outbreak forced its postponement. Due to the government's recently increased restrictions on indoor gatherings, the final had to take place on-line, with all the speakers participating via Zoom.
The motion for the final was "This House Believes that Cancel Culture is Effective" and Leon and James were on the opposition side. They were joined in the final by another team from CBC, Conor Coveney and Jack Mulhall, as well as other speakers from Castleknock Community College, Belvedere, Terenure, St Peter's Wexford and Loreto Beaufort. This marks a great end to a summer of debating for Leon who was part of the Irish Schools' Team who made it to the World Semi-finals.
We are incredibly proud of all four of our students for qualifying for the final and putting in excellent performances in very difficult circumstances. They really did demonstrate the hard work and flexibility that we need to show in these difficult and uncertain times.
Dear parents & students, check out these two new videos about the return to school:

In line with Government requirements, any student who has been travelling to a country that is NOT on the Government's latest green travel list of approved travel countries should not attend school for any reason for at least 14 days after they return to Ireland. Instead, they are required to self-isolate during this period. We are encouraging this in the interest of the health and safety of our whole school community.
