College Pupils Speak Up in Rotary Competition
On the evening of Monday 26th November, Henry W, Emily S and Scarlett K represented the College in the Intermediate section of the Rotary Youth Speaks competition, only just missing out on first place by one mark!
The team's chosen topic was Life without music is flat. They looked into the various benefits of music, from social, medical, cultural and educational perspectives and spoke with real passion, enthusiasm and authority. The trio worked very hard in the lead up to the event, writing and learning their speeches and adding in quotes, facts and a few cheesy music puns. On the night they delivered brilliantly and won a very well-deserved second place. They all enjoyed taking part and are already talking about next year! Well done everyone.
Two teams took part in the Senior competition, Team 1 on the subject of marriage - Is it time to divorce marriage? and Team 2 about anger and why society is becoming more angry - Anger, It's all the rage. Both teams delivered excellent speeches and presentations and they had all worked extremely hard in the run up to the competition. Competition was fierce but we were delighted that Team 2 came runners up. Congratulations to them all!
