What an effort! I could not have been more pleased with the commitment, confidence and poise with which our three sets of Youth Speaks teams presented their speeches to the Rotary club representatives after school on Friday 27th January.
The first team of Eloise Warren, Peter McCabery and Joe Lopez were polished and fluent in their delivery on the subject of “Mental Health Awareness”. What a positive start!
Next up were Tilly Daniel, Lydia Lavender and Sophie Sleeman and their chosen subject, “Designer Bags-Designer Babies!” Wow- what a performance!
Finally, the team of Jamie Hunt, Euan Scott and Elizabeth Hampton. What a sophisticated and enlightening speech on their chosen subject of “Freewill versus Determination”
I have to say that I learnt so much from all three speeches and felt that my knowledge of these subjects had risen as a result of hearing about these scintillating subjects!
I could not have chosen a winning team. However, in a very, very close run result, Tilly, Lydia and Sophie have progressed to the next stage of the competition which will take place at in the Sixth Form Centre at Shebbear College on Thursday 9th February commencing at 5pm. Please support this event if you can. We would love to see you there!
All the very best, team! You are a credit to Holsworthy Community College.
