Coaches and Adjudicators           

We are inviting ex-students and parents to be a part of the Oratory@LN team in 2019. We are looking for adjudicators and coaches and no experience is necessary, just simply an interest in all things oratory. You will need a Working with Children number.

If you are interested, please contact the Oratory Team.

For further information, please refer to the Oratory@LN Handbook and or contact us via email  .
