This success follows on from the triumph of Molly MacDougall and Chloe Russell who won the annual Victim Support Public Speaking competition at UWS on Wednesday evening by delivering powerful speeches on the topics of rape and sexual assault. The girls were commended for their bravery in tackling such emotive subjects, their thorough research undertaken in preparation and the excellent delivery of their presentations. As a result, the girls were awarded a £50 book token each as well as a silver commerative plate with their names engraved as winners. On top of this, the girls were given a cheque for £500 for Marr College and the school will soon be the recipient of the competition trophy/shield once Marr’s name has been added.
