Two teams from Y8 – Shevington Advocates (Abigail Lythgoe, Kristen Cunliffe and April Graydon), who won the June round – and Shevington Squad (Eleanor Gaskell, Jasmine Roberts and Ellie Simm, with Emily Gorman as backup) took part in last week’s Zone Heat of the Youth Speaks competition.

Both teams worked very hard preparing their presentations showing great skill in public speaking. Their commitment and effort has been absolutely outstanding. Unfortunately, on the night the judges selected another team as the winner. Congratulations to Kristen Cunliffe who won the individual award for Best Speaker. Both teams represented both their school incredibly well.

Well Done to all those involved and we look forward to seeing who will represent the school in the next competition.
