Collecting money for the SPCA

Steph and Anne collectingOn Friday 8th November, Steph Becker, one of our year 12 students, Anne Ashby, our superb Careers advisor, and the very handsome ‘Guinness’ stood outside the optometrists shop in Kilbirnie. Why? They were collecting money for the S.P.C.A.

Steph has been volunteering at the S.P.C.A since the beginning of the year and knows first-hand what a wonderful job they do looking after animals that need help. It is something Steph has found very rewarding so she was very keen to help out on the collection day too.

Steph and Guinness
The trio raised a lot of money from people who went past that morning. Guinness the dog belongs to another ‘Steph’ who is an S.P.C.A coordinator. He was particularly well behaved and great company!

If you want a pet go along to the SPCA and there are always lots of cats, dogs ,rabbits even chickens sometimes, wanting a new home. Look out for Steph on S.P.C.A collection day next year.

Girls argue their way to a great debating win

Emily, Julia, and Clare with the Fred McComish Cup

The St Catherine’s College Senior Premier B debating team won their grade in the Wellington Speaking Union’s Intercollegiate Debating Competition in style last night. After a long season of debating (five round-robin debates, plus the quarter-final and semi-final), the girls triumphed over Scots College, affirming the moot “that this house would compel journalists to reveal their sources”.

The win was even more commendable because one of our regular third speaker, Amy Campbell, was unable to compete in the final as she has left to go on exchange to France. The girls were not daunted, however, and Clare Sullivan stepped up from the Senior Certificate team and helped out. Clare took on the first speaker’s role, while Julia Ryan and Emily van Voornveld showed their debating flexibility and took on the other two speaking positions for the evening.

The girls won the Fred McComish Cup for Senior Premier B debating, and Julia Ryan was judged the Best Speaker of the night. We are very proud of them, especially given that the Scots College team is made up of two Year 12s and a Year 13, while our team is two Year 12s and a Year 11. The team has worked very hard under the guidance of Mrs Ryan, Victoria Casey and Grace Jansen (on her brief return from Otago University over the last week). Well done, girls!
