Girls hone public speaking skills at Regional Final

Further to their win at the first round of the English Speaking Union's Public Speaking Competition in January, on Sunday 8th March, Alice, Clara and Athina (LV Form) set off with Father Jonathan and Ms Aherne for Blundell's School in Tiverton, Devon for the South West Regional Final.

"I thought that it was a great experience hearing these probing topics discussed, especially the ones Clara and I had to introduce and question: The prison system is Racism with a 21st Century face. Alice talked amazingly about the topic of National sports teams should reflect the diversity of the nation; she was clear, articulate and to the point. Overall, we all worked very hard to try and prepare for this competition and learnt a lot from this experience."  Athina

Although not victorious on this occasion, the girls gave a very solid performance and should be congratulated on their hard work reaching the Regional Final!
