Winning St John Lloyd pupils address Llanelli Rotary Club

Prize-winning public speakers from St John Lloyd School in Llanelli addressed members of Llanelli Rotary Club at their weekly meeting at the Stradey Park Hotel.
The teams from St John Lloyd carried off the senior and intermediate team prizes in the annual Llanelli Rotary Club Youth Speaks public speaking competition staged at Llanelli Town Hall.
They went on to win the area finals staged at Gower and Llwchwr Rotary Club.
They now go forward to the Rotary District 1150 competition (for all of South Wales) on March 7 at the Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff.
The next step then would be a regional final to be held in Gloucester and a national RIBI Rotary final to be held in May.
Last year, one of the St John Lloyd teams made it all the way to the national final held in Hull.
The St John Lloyd intermediate team debated ‘We’re all going on a term-time holiday, what’s the big deal?’). The team members were – Chair Jack Rees, Speaker Joseph Toft, Vote of thanks proposer Francis Venzon.
The St John Lloyd senior team debated ‘Is there really a red line in chemical warfare?’. Team members were – Chair Blaze Roper, Speaker James McMillan, Vote of thanks proposer Greg David.
Llanelli Rotary Club president Ken Abban said the town's Rotarians were justly proud of the achievements of the St John Lloyd school pupils. He wished the teams every success in the next round of the competition.
