Following their victory at the District competition of Rotary Youth Speaks in February (where they beat last year’s winners, Redmaids’ High School), on Saturday 23rd March, Year 12 students Ben Frith, Anna Geary and Emily John attended the Regional Final of the Public Speaking competition in Leamington Spa. Speaking on the topic of ‘Happiness’, the team were outstanding once again. Ben was a natural and eloquent orator with Emily and Anna perfectly complementing his speech with their clarity, poise and humour. They were a perfect team. After deliberation by the judges, our sixth-form team were announced as the Regional winners and now progress to the National Final on 12th May at The Royal Concert Hall in Nottingham. We are incredibly proud of them and wish them every success at the next stage.
