Si Cathy Tracey With Public Speaking Winners Scaled Soroptimist EventThe annual competition for High School students is run as part of Orange Blossom Festival celebrations in September and will be held on Saturday, 9th September at the Glenhaven Community Centre.

With a strong focus on education for women and girls topics for both Junior and Senior Sections have been chosen to build on the Theme for International Women’s Day 2023 relating to access to digital technology.

Winners from 2022 Senior Sections were invited to speak at this year’s International Women’s Day Breakfast.

Soroptimist International is a vibrant dynamic organisation for women working through service projects to advance human rights and the status of women.

The word Soroptimist comes from the Latin words soror meaning ‘sister’ and optima meaning ‘best”.

The Competition has always received strong support from teachers at a number of local High Schools and is an excellent opportunity for students to try out their public speaking skills, and address the meaningful topics chosen.
