Year 7 Public Speaking Competition

Very well done to our Year 7 pupils, who all contributed to an exciting balloon debate as part of this year’s Year 7 Public Speaking Competition. The six finalists battled it out on Friday in front of an audience of peers, parents and our guest judge, Mr Tiley from Beaudesert Park School, with Fred’s persuasive speech as Alexander Fleming being crowned the winner. In second place was Erica as Joseph Montgolfier (inventor of the hot air balloon – an inspired choice!) and in joint third were Annabel, as Hans Wallsten, and Ashtyn, as Emmeline Pankhurst. Well done, too, to Brandon (Edward Jenner) and Mateo (Nelson Mandela), to the presenters Harry, Luis and Tommy and to all of Year 7 for composing and delivering some superbly written speeches. The biggest thanks to our brilliant Head of English, Mrs Byrne, and to the man who had the hardest job of all – the judge, Mr Tiley.
