After trojan work since September the Spanish Debating Team has won their national competition for the 4th time! The winning combination of captain David Kelly's decisive put downs, Tamara Kraus' meaningful personal account, Ben Buller's political acumen and Kate O'Malley's relentless rebuttal proved unbeatable, once again. Dave Shekleton and Emily Murphy's support and research were invaluable throughout the competition. The patience, effort and dedication of Ms Leahy and Ms Fitzgerald has paid off once again. Thanks to all who supported the journey.

KH was also represented at a very high standard in the Alliance Francaise French, Leinster Schools English, Concern and HistMace debating competitions and the students did the school proud.
