SENIOR SCHOOL UPDATE
Lions Youth of the Year
On Tuesday 26th February, Judy Anderson, Gemma McMahon and myself had the privilege and pleasure to watch Jasmine Sweeney, one of our College Captains, participate in the Lions Youth of the Year Competition that was held at the Mulgrave Country Club.
This competition requires the competitors to attend an interview, followed by two public speaking challenges. In the first of these, the students answer two impromptu questions, which require the students to think quickly on their feet. The second is a prepared speech on a topic of their choice - Jasmine spoke on Domestic Violence. Jasmine’s speech was thoughtful and well written. She spoke clearly and was obviously passionate about her topic. While Jasmine did not win the competition, she can be very proud of the way she participated and conducted herself on the evening. I know we are.
Congratulations and well done Jasmine.
