Second Place in Public Speaking Competition

19 May 2016

Congratulations to Year 10 student and boarder, Mary Henry, for receiving second place in the Rotary Club of Balwyn Public Speaking Competition on Tuesday evening.

Mary was one of four students who progressed to the final after preliminary rounds on Monday 9 May. In this competition, students can speak on any subject that they feel is current, interesting or important. Their speech must be based on the application of Rotary's Four Way Test, with these guiding principles running either expressly or impliedly through their entire speech. Mary delivered an excellent speech about the use of words and the impact of negative comments.

She was awarded a $200 book voucher and Genazzano FCJ College will receive $2000 from the Rotary Club of Balwyn.

Both of Mary's parents were able to come down from Mansfield to attend the event, and she was also acknowledged by her peers and Boarding House staff when she returned home.

Congratulations again, Mary, on your wonderful achievement.
