St John's Fisher

Competing in the Catanians Public Speaking Competition ~ building Oracy

Students from across the diocese once again met to debate and explore their views from topics as diverse as “Tackling Third World Debt” to “Immigration “ to “Plastics and Pollution” to provide our young people with a platform to air their views and opinions. In our continuing efforts to raise Oracy in schools, Alexandra Preece represented St. John Fisher in a heated debate on Sunday at St. Thomas a Becket School in Wakefield. Whilst Alex did not win, the judges and the substantial audience were suitably impressed by her ability to express her views with clarity, confidence and style. She was praised for her content and delivery and held her own in a strong field of 18 other speakers. Well done Alex, it was a pleasure to hear you and see you speak with such confidence on such a challenging topic of “Loneliness; the modern Scourge of Society”
