Catenians Public Speaking Competition
The Catenian Association has a longstanding tradition of supporting young people, including hosting an annual public speaking competition for local Catholic schools
We were invited to send a candidate from our Sixth Form to the regional event, which was attended by ten local Catholic schools. Students spoke for four minutes on a topic that they are passionate about.
This year was the first time St Mary’s had entered and were delighted that Cynthia (Year 12) was the winner of the regional event! Cynthia will join other regional winners at the national final in September.
Cynthia also performed her winning speech to Years 10-13 and was awarded the winners shield from the Bishop.
