Lions Public Speakers

The past couple of weeks has seen five of our senior students battle it out in Lions Youth of the Year club heats. Both Charlotte Ball (Year 11) and Kulani Somarathna (Year 11) participated in the last ones and were fantastic representatives of our College. This public speaking competition is really tough and not for the faint hearted! Not only do they have to complete a comprehensive application listing their achievements and service to others over the years, they have to speak publicly in front of roomfuls of Lions members with impromptu and prepared speeches. Big thanks to Ms Gina Slevec for her kind support and assistance.

We now have two students who have reached the regional final: Xavier Nesbit (Year 11) and Kulani Somarathna – who will compete again next week. We wish them all the very best!
