Western Region Drug & Alcohol Task Force (WRDATF) 2nd year Public Speaking Competition
2017 – 2018 has been a very successful year for our 2nd year Public Speaking team who not only won first place in the county finals of the WRDATF public speaking competition, but also went on to win the Regional Final held in Claremoris in May 2018. Katelyn Hester represented Castlerea Community School and spoke about Alcohol and Young people – the parental role. She was supported by Shauna Flynn, Heaven Evelyn, Rachel Keane and Emma D’Arcy. Katelyn gave a very powerful and informative speech and was a very worthy winner. She encouraged parents and guardians to inform, guide and protect their children around alcohol use. The standard of delivery was very high on the day and Katelyn and her team were thrilled to be awarded first prize.
Thanks to Ms. Larkin and Mr. Nealon for mentoring the team.
