Queen Anne's Compete In Public Speaking Competition

Tuesday 27th January 2015

On Monday 19 January, the Queen Anne’s Junior Public Speaking Team, consisting of Ellie Townend, 4s, Emma Hewlett, L5, and Gracie Whitefoord, 4s, set out to Blessed Hugh Faringdon School in Reading to compete in the Rotary Club’s Youth Speaks Competition.

All of us were very nervous, as it was our first competition as a team together, and most of us had never experienced a competition like this either. Nevertheless, we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly whilst listening to the other team’s speeches and eventually presenting our own. It was very nerve-wracking to walk up to the lectern, but once we started with our respective speeches, everything flowed very well.

Our chosen topic was ‘Equality for women in the workplace’, which we all found an intriguing topic to learn more and speak about in front of an audience. We all did extremely well when performing our speeches, and spoke loudly (!), before having a break whilst the judges adjudicated the contestants. Unfortunately, we did not win, but we had a very good time exploring the various questions and dilemmas included in our topic.

We would all like to thank Mr Lovell, for organising us and the competition, and Mr Owen, for coming along to support us whole-heartedly.
