Senior Choral Concert
The concert was held at St Luke’s Church in Chelsea.  The choirs sang to a full church, performing Haydn’s Nelson Mass and it was a pleasure to welcome former pupil Clare Lloyd-Griffiths as soprano soloist. It was a splendid concert and the singing of carols by both choir and audience was a wonderful way to begin the festive season.

       


Speak Out Workshop

This term, all Fouth Form pupils took part in the Jack Petchey Speak Out Workshop, a session designed to develop confidence and skills in public speaking. After an incredibly positive day in which the boys made huge progress, two pupils were chosen to represent the school at the Hammersmith and Fulham Regional Final at Phoenix Academy on Thursday 6 December. Dan Murphy (4F - left) and Oliver Washington (4C - right) delivered exceptionally powerful and engaging speeches. They were supported by Rory O’Dwyer 4F, our dedicated reserve speaker. Whilst they were not put through to the next round of the competition, their performances were highly impressive and certainly some of the best of the night.


Senior Debating

The debating season began once again in September with the English Speaking Union’s MACE competition. Commonly regarded as one of the most difficult competitions of the highest standards, we are pleased to announce that our London Oratory Senior Debaters have qualified to the Regional Finals taking place in February. Tadhg McCabe and Harry Black made a sensational team as they powerfully opposed the motion that ‘This house would ban the sale and consumption of meat’ against Kensington Park School. We look forward to the next round where the pupils will be proposition for This house would prohibit businesses from taking a public position on social issues. Pictured below:
