On Thursday 27 February, Year 12 students Madeleine Midgley and Caitlin Brown represented Stuartholme at the Lion’s Youth of the Year Quest at the Lavalla Centre.
The girls were interviewed individually at School during the day by a panel of three judges in regards to their contributions to the community and knowledge of local current affairs.
On the night, the girls presented a five minute prepared speech as well as being asked to answer two impromptu questions –
1) “The current level of violent behaviour linked to alcohol consumption has reached intolerable levels. What strategies could you suggest to the Government to curb this situation in our society?”
2) “The Australian psyche has a strong obsession with sporting heroes, yet we have had six Noble Laureates in the last ten years, all of whom are relatively unknown in the broader community. Why do you believe this is so?”
The standard of speaking was outstanding as was the presentation of all students involved. Both Maddie and Caitlin were very worthy representatives of Stuartholme. Well done girls!
