Soroptimist Competition Success

Rebecca Richardson (year 13) & Dion Di Maio (year 12)




On the 10th November at 7:00pm, Rebecca Richardson (Year 13) and Dion Di Maio (Year 12) competed against 15 other girls from 4 different schools in an annual public speaking competition. It was held in Ranfurly House by Soroptimist International and the Mid-Ulster Women’s Aid; both organisations with strong beliefs in helping females gain confidence. The girls had to prepare a 4-6 minute speech on their chosen topics, with the aim to impress the three judges and intrigue the audience watching. Both girls performed extremely well on the night with Dion Di Maio achieving second place. Congratulations to both students for this great achievement.
