Youth Speaks Competition
Thursday 1 February saw our Intermediate and Senior Public Speaking teams competing in the Zone Finals of the Youth Speaks Competition run by Rotary International.
Despite a late substitution due to illness of Dan in for Tom the Intermediate team performed excellently against teams who were all older than them. A polished performance from Reading Blue Coats stole the day, and they also took home the Senior Trophy, beating the Claires Court Team. Our Senior Boys were particularly praised by the judges for an original and engaging speech.
Rob Bowen, Drama teacher, said:
“All who took part in this year's competition (Rafe, Dan, Tom, Connor, Freddie, Seb and Kabir) should be very proud of themselves and their achievements - let's aim for District next year!”
