Getting ready for Round One

Hello everyone, Roisin here again. Things have been a little crazy around here over the past few weeks – the phone has been ringing off the hook, and the email inbox filling up with new messages from schools all over the country enquiring about this year’s debates.

To date, 158 teams have registered from across the country for the debates, which is fantastic! All details for Round One can be found in the latest news section and links for research will be available online during the week.


I would like to apologise for Friday, we were supposed to have the Round One information available on the site but getting all the data together took longer than expected and by the time it was done the web team had gone home for the weekend (it was after 6pm).

If your school has missed the deadline for entry, please give us a call on 01 417 7733 or email and you will be added to a waiting list.

To all of you participating in the debates, I hope you like our first motion “Overseas Development Aid is a waste of money”.
