Wednesday 25th November saw a group of Royal School Cavan pupils travel to their sister school in Armagh to partake in this year’s Royal Schools Debate. All 5 Royal Schools converged to dispute a number of topics ranging from sport to freedom fighting. Royal School Cavan was represented by myself, Tiwani Akinlabi, and Maxwell O’Keefe, who proposed that ‘In sport, winning is everything’. We put forward a valiant effort, giving our Dungannon opponents a hard time. Unfortunately, we were beaten in a close battle at the quarter final stage.
A short break was given before the semi-finals, and the victors were the two Armagh teams, one of schools to have a debating club. The topic for the final was undisclosed, and was revealed 20 minutes before the final. An intense debate based on whether ‘you should take the road less travelled’ ensued, but in the end, the Armagh 1 team prevailed. A big thank you to Royal School Armagh for it’s hospitality.
