Cardiff Schools & Colleges Public Speaking Competition
Jacob V, of St John’s College Lower Sixth form, has won the ‘Cardiff Schools & Colleges Public Speaking Competition’ this afternoon. This is an annual event run by Catenian Association to encourage debating across catholic education.
Twelve entrants, from a number of sixth form colleges across South Wales, debated various topics, including ‘Is Climate Change unavoidable’; ‘Is the UK still a United Kingdom?’ and ‘Is Artificial Intelligence a threat to humankind?’ Jacob spoke on the fourth choice, ‘What is the future for Christian belief in 21st Century Britain?’
Jacob was awarded both a School Winner’s shield for St John’s College and an individual plaque. He will now progress to the regional contest in Bristol.
The event was also an opportunity for the Catenian Association Bursary Fund to be explained to attendees, in an effort to support students engagement in voluntary projects across the world.
