The Maryfield Public Speaking team recently took part in the annual competition run by the Irish Federation of University Women. Each student delivered an impromptu speech on a topic given half an hour before the event. Speaking in the Under 15s category, held at the Quinn Building UCD, Nina Coughlan Colley, Ailbhe McCaughey and Lailatul Rahman proudly represented Maryfield College. Nina spoke out brilliantly on her topic; Celebrity: the price is too high. Ailbhe thoroughly engaged the audience with her topic; Do young people drink too much? Laila gave an extremely convincing speech on the topic; School uniforms should be abolished. Well done to each to each of the girls and a big thank you to Ms Whyte for preparing the team!
