Commitment, diligence and a desire to improve, are all qualities that two of the College Year 12 students have shown by entering the Lions Youth of the Year competition. The competition emphasises students' academic and sporting skills as well as cultural and community engagement.
Congratulations to both Christopher Preston and Seana Connolly for representing the College and the Kingscliff Lions Club branch on Thursday 9 February. Both students presented themselves admirably and spoke with passion on heartfelt topics. The judges were very impressed by all competitors relaying that the school, teachers and the students’ parents should all be very proud.
Seana was recognised as the Public Speaker Winner and was also equal overall winner alongside a competitor from Lindisfarne. Seana will now go on to represent the district at the regional level to be held in Ballina.
Both students acknowledged the wonderful opportunity the competition offered to hone their leadership skills through interview and public speaking.
Madeline Smith from Year 11 will be competing at the Tweed Heads Lions Club tomorrow, Tuesday 21 February. We wish her well.
