OLMC competed at the Frayne Speech Festival on Friday 25 August at Mount Lilydale Mercy College, with some fantastic and exciting results.

After five weeks of rehearsals, 24 students attended and represented OLMC in debating, public speaking and Voice Choir from Year 9 to Year 12. Despite our debating teams winning both debates and receiving best speakers, they just missed out on going through to the finals.

However, Sarah G (11LMGL) and Caitlyn A (11MMWI) were selected for the finals for public speaking and Sarah G (our Debating Captain) won overall.

We had 17 students participate in Voice Choir and their performance was so strong that they received first place.

A huge thank you to staff for their support of our students and assistance with the event.
