Congratulations to our Year 8 Youth Speaks Debating Team, Ariana Walker, Oliver Le Feurve and Isaac Slater who won both the regional heat of the Youth Speaks Debating Competition in November and the Zone Final recently. They competed against teams from Faringdon Community College, Our Lady’s School Abingdon, Bloxham School and Matthew Arnold School. The standard was high and they did fantastically.
The title for their debate was '’There is nothing better than sliced bread'. The judges were particularly impressed by the team's polished performance and ability to speak directly to the audience . Anyone who speaks in public will agree this is a skill which takes time to perfect!
The team are pictured above with one of the judges
Well done to the team and Mrs Enright their coach.
