PC public speakers have again been victorious.

Matthew Walsh was awarded first place in a strong field of 24 competitors in the Edgar Graham Memorial Public Speaking Competition which took place last Wednesday at Stormont.

The adjudicator prefaced the presentation of the silver salver by saying that it was going to the individual who had produced “an exceptional piece of public speaking”.

Not to be left out, Katherine Whitten was awarded “First Highly Commended”, which meant that she was ranked 4th overall.

This continues the excellent performance of Portadown College at this event.  Sophie Hill was first last year and Neil Reilly second the year before.
