Trinity sweeps the board at Youth Speaks
Trinity students competed again this week in the annual Rotary Club Youth Speaks competition at Arlington Arts on Wednesday 29th November, with teams entered into the junior and senior competitions.
Our junior team comprising of Alyssa Taylor, Sam Bishop and Millie Kerry spoke on the subject of “Is Remembrance Day still relevant in 2017?”. Two teams entered the senior competition: Eddie Haines, Justine Barker and Carolina Carvalho (Team A) spoke about Tax Evasion: A crime of economics or morality? and Team B, Erle Nash-Williams, Harry Craig and Aaron Brown, spoke about Climate Change: A Global Responsibility.
We were delighted at the end of the evening when our junior team came second and our senior team A won their competition with Harry Craig from Team B taking the competition’s overall Best Speaker prize. Our senior team will now go through to the regional heats in the New Year.
“I’m extremely proud of our students. We seem to have a gift for public speaking and always do very well in this competition. This year the topics were well thought of and the speeches well-constructed, which resulted in great success.”
