Bloomfield Collegiate entered two teams into the Northern Ireland Schools Debating Competition for the Academic Year 2012-13. The pupils involved were Jenny Moates, Jessica Galway, Briar Dickey and Natalie Clarke.
Many schools across Northern Ireland enter into this prestigious knockout competition with the hope of becoming NI champions. Bloomfield Collegiate managed defeat many schools on our way to the quarter finals before losing to eventual winners St Columb’s of Londonderry/Derry. Despite our loss the adjudication panel awarded the pupils the Team of the Year; this award is presented to the school that did not make the final but contributed most to the competition. Well done to the aforementioned students.
