Northern Ireland Voice Box Award 2017

On Monday 5th June, we arrived at Belfast City Hall to attend the Northern Ireland Voicebox Awards 2017. The day began with registration and an entertainer juggling and making us laugh before the main event! What can we say other than what fantastic children there are here in Northern Ireland speaking confidently and clearly delivering the punchlines of their jokes. We were in fits of laughter! Odhran delivered his joke with charismatic charm, clear speech and formidable confidence not thrown by the panel of judges. After deliberation by the judges the winners were announced! We are proud to announce that Odhran from Knockmore Primary School is the 2017 Champion of the Voicebox Awards NI hosted by the Royal College of Speech & Language Therapists.

Congratulations Odhran you are a star!!!
