- Rotary Youth Speakers National Final - President Kennedy School Wins Two Trophies!

Three year 7 students, Esha Gupta, Harry Gilsenan and Mya Birdee have been competing in the Rotary Youth Speaks public speaking competition in recent months. They have done fabulously well, winning the local, district and regional rounds leading them into the national final held on Saturday 7th of May. Students, family, staff and local Rotarians travelled to Kirkham Grammar School in Preston to take part in the final . Our students represented the entire West Midlands and South Wales region and competed against other teams  aged 11-13 from around the country. Their speeches focused on ‘Blockbuster Books’.

The students, once again, performed with confidence under huge pressure at this very formal occasion.

The President Kennedy School team were delighted to be awarded the third place nationally for their overall speeches and were presented with an impressive trophy at the end of the day.

Students, relatives and friends erupted when the judges announced that Eesha Gupta had won the individual public speaking award for her ‘Vote of Thanks’.  A fantastic result for Esha and President Kennedy School! She too, was presented with a trophy marking her outstanding achievement.

This is a wonderful result as the team brought two trophies home to President Kennedy School! I am extremely proud of Harry, Mya and Eesha who’s hard work and dedication has been recognised in this national competition. In addition, they have represented the school with great PRIDE at each event they have attended.

Congratulations to the team and many thanks to the families and staff who have supported the students throughout the competition.

Thanks also to the Rotary Club of Coventry who have sponsored the team.
