Public speaking heat Province 7

The Province 7 heat of the national Catenian Sixth Form public speaking competition was won by Anitta Biju from St Gregory’s school, Tunbridge Wells who spoke about the evils of smoking. The runner-up was Benedict Doggwiler from St Gregory’s Tunbridge Wells who spoke about “The Del Boy complex”. Third was Dillon Oppon Ferguson from St Thomas the Apostle, Nunhead speaking on “has technology gone too far?”. Anitta goes on to the national finals in Manchester next September. The standard of speaking was very high and congratulations to all who took part. Subjects ranged from euthanasia to Afro hair and water pollution. 6 schools were represented – Coloma Convent Girls’, Croydon, Sacred Heart, Southwark, St Simon Stock, Maidstone and Bishop Thomas Grant school who hosted the event. The judges were Bishop Pat Lynch, retired head teacher Sharon Grange and Province 7 Catenian director Brendan Ducey.  

If your local Sixth form is not represented they are missing out on a wonderful opportunity for their students to improve their communication skills. Contact John Woodhouse johnwoodhousecat@gmail.com.
