For the third year running students from Our Lady’s Convent School’s Lower Sixth have won the Rotary District 1070 Senior Youth Speaks competition, gaining the title District Champions.
During the competition, which was held at the weekend, the team which comprised of Chloe Slee, Rebecca Hull and Zahra Bhojani faced some stiff opposition. As well as being part of the winning team Rebecca and Zahra were also recognised for their roles as Best Chair and the Best Speaker respectively. The team will now progress to the regional finals later in the year.
Dr Murphy, Headmaster, said “The girls are to be congratulated on becoming district public speaking champions at the weekend. This is a wonderful achievement and testament to their skill and hard work. They are a credit to the School and their families.”
The students attend a regular Public Speaking Club run by Head of Sixth Form, Mr Chris Gallagher, supported by Mr and Mrs John and Roma Cox.
