On Wednesday 20th November four of our pupils took part in
the annual Soroptimist Public Speaking Competition, in the
Arts Centre. Katie Sands, Dana Meehan and Chloe Smith all
Year 12 pupils and Courtney McEvoy, a year 13 pupil,
presented incredibly strong, passionate and well informed
speeches to a panel of judges. The girls spoke at length on
a range of subjects, from the thought provoking title ‘Real
wealth is never measured in money or possessions’ to the
very relevant topic ‘How do we tackle the plastic issue?’. The
girls were applauded for the articulate and mature speeches.
Well done to all for taking part and a special congratulations
to Courtney who was placed second in the competition.
