O'Shea Shield - A First

Today sees the start of the second term, always a busy 10 weeks. This year it contains a very special event, the first time FDMC has hosted the O'Shea Shield competition. Richard Marris and a large team of workers are putting it all together. Below is a message from Richard with more details.

On May 1 & 2 our school is host to the O'Shea Shield for the first time. This is an annual speech
and drama festival that takes place across 17 Catholic secondary schools covering the Wellington Archdiocese and the Palmerston North Diocese. Some 300 students will be involved over the weekend in debates, impromptu speaking, oratory, junior prepared speech, religious drama, scripture reading and religious questions. We would appreciate any offers of help over that weekend or any offers of baking to help feed the staff and adults who will be accompanying the schools. If you can help please let the office know. Events run Saturday morning and afternoon at school, Saturday night at West City Church and Sunday morning and early afternoon back at school.

Old boys are more than welcome to come along and get involved in what is always a very high standard of speech and drama.
