Public Speaking

Public Speaking

The Convent of Mercy has a long and distinguished tradition of participation in Public Speaking and Debating and our junior and senior teams have enjoyed success at county, regional and national levels over the years. We participate in the following competitions:

  • BPW (Business and Professional Women’s) Public Speaking Competition
  • Concern Schools English Debating Competition
  • Gael Linn Irish Debating Competition
  • NUI Maynooth Model Parliament
  • WRDTF (Western Regional Drugs Task Force) Public Speaking Competition

Tá traidsiún láidir maidir le díospóireacht sa ghaeilge i Meánscoil Muire gan Smál. Gach bliain, bíonn deis ag daltaí sóisearacha agus sinsearacha páirt a ghlacadh sa chomórtas náisiúnta Gael Linn. Le déanaí, bhí rath iontach orainn sa chraobh réigiúnach leis an bhfoireann sinsearach agus sa chraobh uile-Éireann leis an bhfoireann sóisearach.
