Year 8 have been taking part in a Public Speaking Competition this year, with the first round starting in their English lessons.  Each teacher then nominated students to go through to the final. 10 students competed in the grand final which took place in the school hall with Mrs Grant and Mrs Marl, delivering speeches on a range of issues about which they felt strongly.  It was  a fabulous event and a great opportunity for students to practise oracy skills essential in the modern world. The students  all received  a chocolate and a certificate, and the  winner was presented with  an Amazon voucher. Well done to all involved!
