Congratulations to Hugo McElligott (6th Year) who has been awarded a Gold Medal for his Certificate in Public Speaking by the Leinster School of Music & Drama.
Hugo's great win was acknowledged by the whole school at Monday morning's Assembly.
His main speech ‘Cultural Transitions’ was based on his observations on the cultural differences in the countries he visited during his TY year, namely France, Italy and the United States.
The examiner said it was ‘A fine talk with a great opening, concise and informative work with a touch of humour. Most interesting and handled with maturity.’
Hugo is also on the Glenstal Debating team with Br Colmán.
