Soroptimist social speaking
BRAY AND district club of Soroptimists hosted their annual public speaking competition recently.
Club Members welcomed young women from secondary schools in Bray and surrounding areas to speak on current affairs affecting people globally.
The evening kicked off with a robust discussion on topics such as volunteering, human rights and global peace keeping all entertained. The adjudicators on the night had a difficult but enjoyable task as the contestant's speeches were interesting and informed, full of emotive personal views and opinions.
The winners from this event will go forward to the regional finals, which will be held in February 2013.
Club member and MC on the night - Speech and Drama Teacher Ms. Pat Mc Hugh, said a special thanks to parents and teachers for all their support. She said that the delivery and clarity of speaking at the event was to a very high standard.
