On Thursday 26th April, 30 Students from Year 10 Student Voice took part in the Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge workshop. The Jack Petchey "Speak Out" Challenge is a programme run by the Speakers Trust and funded by the Jack Petchey Foundation. The Year 10 students spent the day learning public speaking skills and how to communicate with confidence and enjoyment. The training involved games and improvisational speeches. As the end of the session everyone prepared and performed their "Speak Out" speech.
Certificates were awarded for Most Improved speaker, and a winner and runner up were chosen to go through to the Regional final. Omar Ally will represent the school on the 24th May at the Regional final at Honywood School, with Tony Upton in reserve.
Congratulations to all the students that took part.
Mrs Osborne, Head Librarian
Well done to all the year 10s who took part in the assessment expedition for the Bronze Duke of Edinburgh Award. In total sixty-three students from Year 10 took part in the expedition and we are very pleased to say that they all completed the expedition successfully.
The weather was not as favourable as the practice expedition, but the teams did not let the rain dampen their spirits.
Many thanks go to all the students for their excellent teamwork, positivity and resilience. Also thank you to the following staff who supported the trip; Mrs Readhead, Miss Rabhi, Miss Stoneley, Miss Shephard, Mr Wishart, Miss Cobb, Mrs Wallace and Miss Wilcox.
We now to forward to the students completing their personal sections of physical, skill and voluntary and receiving their Bronze Award.
