Congratulations to Felix and Hayden who claimed the Year 8 Public Speaking trophy yesterday after delivering a superb speech about feminism to the whole of Year 8, tutors and English staff yesterday afternoon. It was quite a performance! Second and third place prizes were awarded to Amelia Timbrell and Amelia Selah (2nd) and Jessie Pither and Alex Colquhoun (3rd) for their excellent speeches.
“This year’s public speaking event was fantastic! The students were absolutely incredible despite many of them struggling with nerves as they rehearsed during the day. The English team are extremely proud of everyone who took part. They were an inspiring bunch of speakers!” said Miss Hardy after watching the winners collect their prizes from judges Mrs Stitfall (Head of English) and Miss Elkerton (Assistant Head).
All the Year 8 students have spent the past term working in small groups to prepare speeches on any topic of their choice. Each class then voted for who they thought was the best in their group and each class winner then took part in the finals held in the school hall in front of the whole year group. The topics covered included mental health, deforestation, animal testing, pollution of the seas, the death penalty and feminism! In fact the feminism topic proved hugely popular as both teams who chose this topic were awarded prizes.
A huge well done goes to all the speakers and to all of Year 8 who were so supportive of them throughout.
