Congratulations to Niamh in Form 4 who was joint winner of the Soroptimists public speaking local heat this week in the Mullingar Park Hotel, pictured here with her teacher and coach Mr Burke. The motto of Niamh's speech was 'break the stereotype' and she focused on the heroism of Edith Cavell, whose courage saved the lives of hundreds during World War 1. Niamh faced off opposition from several local schools and the standard was very high!
Commiserations to Sarah who also spoke very well in the competition but unfortunately lost out. Niamh will proceed to the regional round of the competition in the coming weeks. The competition is tough and we wish her well!
