2010 TY House Speech Competition

Our annual House Speech competition was held last night in the BSR. The first event of the year which brings all the Transition Year together, it features two pupils from each House speaking for 3-5 minutes on a topic of their own choice.

Niamh Faulkner started off by talking about the very different culture of Oman, where she lives. Following her were: Conor McCooey (Liverpool Football Club), Tim Hone (bikes and bikers), Jamie Boyd (Lower Gwynn), Aifric Tracey ('improper' words), Zach Stephenson (speech-making), Hugo Hollis (collecting for charity), Jasmine Blenkins O'Callaghan (her 'mad' family), Neil Dalrymple (being small), and finally Catie McGonagle (cheerleading in America).

The judges Dr Stone, Ms Smith and last year's winner Tom Gibbs gave 5th place to Niamh, 4th to Jasmine, equal second to Aifric and Catie, and a popular and deserved first place to Neil Dalrymple for his confident (and visually striking) talk about what it is like to be vertically-challenged. Hollypark won the House competition, followed by Iona and Stackallan.

A pupil review will appear on this site shortly.
