16/06/2014 PUBLIC SPEAKING SUCCESS FOR LORETO COLLEGE STUDENTS

Two students from Loreto College Coleraine took part in the annual inter-Loreto Mary Ward Public Speaking competition on Friday 13th June.

Hosted by Loreto Grammar School Omagh, the competition involved students from the Junior school and the standard was high in a day of positive competition and uniting links between the sister schools.

Loreto Coleraine was represented in the Year 9 competition by Eve Gardiner: Eve took second place in her section, speaking on the topic of Social Media, Friend or Foe.  In the Year 10 competition, Loreto Coleraine was represented by Rebecca Dillon.  Rebecca also took second place, with a speech on Mary Ward is as relevant today as in the 17th century.

Mr Michael James, Principal of Loreto College, paid tribute to Eve and Rebecca on their hard work and enthusiasm, and to Mrs Siobhan Mullan, Public Speaking Co-ordinator, who accompanied them to the competition.
