Two of our primaries took part: Stephanie Neill and Aidan Dickson (Thornlie) and Stephanie Conner (Newmains). These fine orators delivered a wonderful programme of insightful, humorous, reflective and challenging speeches. At the end of a really tight contest, Stephanie Neill received her individual award and the Public Speaking Shield for Thornlie. In the Inter House event, Stuart Coombes, Alexandra Smith and Lucy Dunning, represented Houldsworth, and Curran’s team was Laura Kirk, Sarah Chance and James Kilpatrick.
Well done to Miss Claire Douglas, Principal Teacher of English, who organised the event, and who worked with all Primary and Junior speakers in preparation for the event. And, a special thank you to the many teachers, parents and friends who provided an appreciative audience for these very talented speakers.
