Through to Public Speaking Regional Finals

Two teams of Year 7 students  beat off competition across the city and are all set to compete with schools across our region in this weekend’s Regional the Rotary Youth Speaks Public Speaking competition. Both teams from The Bridge competed in a public speaking competition organised by  the Rotary Club at Bablake School earlier in the term.  Competing against many other schools from across Coventry(including representation from the independent sector), our speakers knew that only three teams could go through into the regional finals.

 President Kennedy School’s Blue team (Riley Austin-King, Molly Wilson and Harry Platts) spoke on ‘the possibility of a zombie apocalypse’. President Kennedy School’s Red team, (Methusha Jeyakanthan, Paige Twissell and Ethan Osbourne) spoke about how the social media has affected young minds both positively and negatively.

Year 7 student Paige Twissel reported “After a long wait, the judges returned and gave us our individual feedback. The judges said that both our teams were really good and had made a fantastic effort before revealing that the best speaker in the competition was our very own Harry Platts!  Then the most important part of the night; who was going through to the next round?  We were so over the moon and delighted when they revealed that my team came third  and President Kennedy Blue team came second. (Heart of England came first). This meant that both teams from President Kennedy School have got through to the finals! We’re now gearing up for March 7th…!”

Good luck to both teams in this Saturday’s finals.
