Pupils from Slough Catholic Primary Schools “Speak Up for CAFOD”

Pupils from:

Our Lady of Peace Catholic Junior School

St Ethelbert’s Catholic Primary School

St Anthony’s Catholic Primary School

and

St Bernard’s Catholic Preparatory School

came to St Anthony’s Catholic Church, Farnham Royal to compete in this year’s “Speak up for CAFOD” public speaking competition.

Their challenge was to address the question:

“Why, in a world of plenty, are people still hungry?”

Claire delivers her talk on "Why, in a world of plenty, are people still hungry" 
Charlotte delivers her talk on “Why, in a world of plenty, are people still hungry”

All eight speakers delivered their talk with confidence and clarity.  They had evidently done a great deal of research and shared what they had learned with the judges and the audience.

Fr Noel Connelly from the Church of the Holy Redeemer, Mr Frank King from Rotary and Mrs Katie Chester were set the task of judging the speakers and came to the unanimous conclusion that Charlotte, from Our Lady of Peace Catholic Junior School had excelled in her research and delivery.

It is hoped that each of the speakers will get the opportunity to speak in their parishes over the next few weeks and share what they have learned as part of CAFOD’s Hungry for Change campaign. Certainly we can expect great things from these young people who are a great sign of hope and witness.
