Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS -

HIGH School stu­dents have rep­re­sented their col­lege in a pub­lic speak­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

James Mus­grave and Ai­dan Hughes, who are stu­dents at All Hal­lows Catholic Col­lege, rep­re­sented the school in the North West Pub­lic Speak­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

The event took place at Manch­ester’s con­fer­ence cen­tre in the Pen­du­lum Ho­tel, with more than 100 peo­ple in the au­di­ence.

Both stu­dents pre­pared with the help of Carmel Friend.

James talked about ‘The voice of democ­racy is no proof of jus­tice’, and Ai­dan Hughes en­tered with his speech ‘There is suf­fi­cient in the world for man’s needs but not man’s greed’.

James, who came in sec­ond place and won £75 for his ef­forts, said: “Al­though it was a daunt­ing ex­pe­ri­ence it re­ally helped build my con­fi­dence speak­ing in pub­lic.

“It has been a great ex­pe­ri­ence and I learnt many use­ful skills to take for­ward.”
