Tobar an Léinn is a small 6 teacher primary school located in the village of Raheen, Co. Laois, Ireland.
The motion "School uniforms are a good idea" was debated between the pupils of Shanahoe N.S & Tobar an Léinn N.S yesterday, Monday January 20th.
Opposing the motion were Kaja, Eleanor, and Tiernan supported by Lucy, Cian and Mark.
Shanahoe came out on top after a thrilling contest. Many thanks to Ms. Hayes for helping the children research and prepare for their debate. A huge thank you to our judges and adjudicator as well Mr. O' Connor and Shanahoe for coming over to the debate. A culture of debating is now firmly established in the school and the feedback that we received yesterday will stand us in good stead going forward.
There was great fun and excitement in Tobar an Léinn on Friday as all the boys and girls and teachers took part in Operation Transformation's 10@10. For 10 minutes all classes practiced different drills and exercises which Ms Griffin prepared. After our 10@10 all our hearts were pumping.
