Welcome to Primary Debating Ireland, a society set up by Aideen Hand and Jill Murphy. The aim of this website is to inform other like minded teachers and individuals of debating tips and rules for primary school debating.
The objective is to enrich the children's cognitive and language abilities not to mention encouraging confidence, in ages ranging from 10-12 and classes in the senior end of the school (4th-6th). Never before has there been a website in Ireland dedicated to Primary School Debating alone.
We also set up the first All Ireland Primary Debating Competition, a project in which Senator David Norris, MEP Marian Harkin and RTE'S Oliver Callan are Honorary Patrons.
