Two teams from Second Year took part in the Junior Loreto Mace Debates on Friday 11 January, in Loreto Crumlin. Team A: Aoife O’Grady and Nicole Go. Team B: Aoife Carter and Eve McCool. They had three debates on the day, two were prepared motions. These were: This house would pay students for good grades and this house would test on animals. The surprise motion was that this house believes that teenagers have it easier than adults.

Team A made it into the last eight teams in the competition and so will take part in the Semi-Finals in March.
