On Tuesday, Year 6 attended Our Lady of Lourdes Seven Hills, to support Olivia K in the final of the Parramatta Diocese Voice of Youth.
Olivia was selected to compete against five other students and presented her speech on Organ Donation. This is a phenomenal effort as throughout the Diocese there are 2500 Year 6 students who all entered this year’s Voice of Youth competition. Olivia delivered her speech to the audience with poise and confidence as did the other five students, and left the judges with an extremely tough choice as to who should receive the awards.
Olivia received the Social Justice Award. This award is given to the student whose speech is on a topic that aligns with the Catholic social teachings of the church and highlights an area of awareness or need in our society. This is a very prestigious award and one that we at Christ the King are extremely proud to see Olivia receive it.
Congratulations Olivia on a great effort of writing, practicing and presenting your speech over the term. The awards you have received are a credit to your effort and character.Year 6 Teacher
