The Stockley Cup is the premier public speaking competition for high school students in the Wellington region. Held annually, the competition brings together the best public speakers and orators from dozens of schools to speak on ideas such as racism, feminism, the relationship between parents and kids, and religion. Last year in 2016, talented young Ohariu parishioner, Kiya Basabas from Newlands College, won the cup. This year in 2017, she made history again by winning the competition for the second year in a row. Listen to her speech https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bT1NsXZ32H0
