The event took place on Thursday 26 June. It proved to be both an entertaining and informative evening. For many of our pupils who prepared and delivered presentations, speaking to a large group of people was a new experience.

The competition winners were the Religious Education Faculty, whose great life was Jackie Pullinger - a British missionary who went to Hong Kong and worked in the Kowloon Walled City. Her work has resulted in at least 500 drug addicts being saved from their drug addictions.
