Bishop Lyons 2023

Stephen Kennedy —

St Thomas of Canterbury College won the Bishop Lyons' Shield Competition... the public speaking competition for the seven Catholic Colleges in the diocese. A huge honour for us to travel to Greymouth and bring home the silverware! 

The students were wonderful both on and off the stage! The team were coached by staff and STC old boy, Mr Daniel Fogarty (Dan participated in many of our previous campaigns but unfortunately missed his own Year 13 campaign when the competition was cancelled under COVID regulations.)
