The St Mary’s College Public Speaking Team performed well this Tuesday evening in a very competitive heat organised by the English Speaking Union. Year 10 students Joshua Hall (Chair), Orla McGinnis (Speaker) and Matthew Jansen (Questioner) came up against four strong Year 11 teams (two each from King Edward’s and Winchester College) and acquitted themselves very well.

The team didn’t progress to the next round, but Matthew Jansen was awarded a prize for being ‘Best Questioner’ of the heat and all team members found the experience challenging but fascinating, and are keen to try again next year.
