Year 10 take part in the Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge

Twenty six Year 10 pupils took place in the Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge. The pupils spent a day working with Mr J Drew from the Speakers Trust to develop their speech writing and presentation skills.  The day culminated with students writing and giving speeches with the best student going forward to the regional Speak Out Challenge final. Students spoke on a range of subjects from educational reform to importance of CPR.

After a close fought contest Laura Maze was named the winner with Ryan McGee and Nikita Smith named as runner up. Laura has since gone on to represent the school at the regional final with her winning entry. 

Congratulations to all those students involved.
