During the week of 24 May the ‘Speak Confidently’ program came to Rutherford College for a day and worked with students to hone their public speaking skills and develop confidence in presenting their ideas, views, and opinions.

We ended by celebrating the renewed confidence and panache that the selected students gained in this workshop.
