Following on from their victory in the Wigan Schools Round of the 2014-15 Rotary Club Youth Speaks public speaking competition, our team – Michelle Nsemba (Chairperson), Erin Chard (Speaker) and Harry Jones (Vote of Thanks) – went on to further success last night in the Zone Final of the competition, hosted by Bedford High School, Leigh.

The standard of speeches delivered by all the teams was once again superb. Our team were delighted to win this round and are now looking forward to the District Final, to be held in the Forest Hills Hotel in Frodsham in early March.

Mr Lunt (Youth Speaks co-ordinator), Mr Grant (Headteacher) and Mr Baxter (Pastoral Tutor) were there to support the team and celebrate their victory. It was also very pleasing to see parents and family members of the team in attendance – a big thank you for your support.

We now look forward to busily preparing for an even tougher challenge in the next round!

Mr Lunt
