Alex Kennedy’s Ted Talk Live (2)

Well its finally here... 

In March, TY student Alex Kennedy took to the stage in front of a packed out Dublin Castle to deliver her insightful and powerful speech 'Peel off the Label.' 

Alex's speech was one of 16 chosen from 350 entries for the TEDed Talks series/Dail100 centenary celebrations. 

Her intruguing discussion uncovered topical issues surrounding stereotypes, generalisation, disadvantage in education and society and its affects on a young person's growth and development. 

We are all so extremely proud of Alex, not only for being selected but for the hard work and dedication she exhibited during the process; from months of workshops in the Mansion House to fornightly online tutoring sessions and countless rehearsals, Alex ensured that she represented not only herself but our school and inner city community with pride and distinction! 

Below is a recording of her talk 'Peel off the Label'  which was met with huge acclaim and applause back in March.

We hope you enjoy and take something from it too...

Well done Alex, you were brilliant!
