ARTICULATE pupils at Trinity Catholic School have the gift of the gab.
The Warwickshire Youth Parliament hosted a competition which saw teams of pupils from across the county present their ideas about how to combat discrimination in society.
The youth parliament’s national campaign this year is to tackle racism and religious discrimination so Quincy Sproul, Catherine Tormey and Maddie Bevan from Trinity chose to speak on the topic of immigration, and took top spot
They suggested media representation of immigration is negative and the many positive aspects should be considered instead. The team were complimented by the judges on a clear and thought provoking presentation.
And in another speaking competition organised by the Soroptimists – an international association of clubs for professional and business women – pupils from across the region were invited to present a speech on topics ranging from education to women’s rights.
Jude Radley came second in the competition and chose to talk about ‘if I didn’t have education’, highlighting the flaws of current trends in educational policy. He thought it was a great opportunity for young people to express their opinion on major global issues.
And Oliver Webb – who came first at last year’s competition – gave a speech on the issue of migration
