On Tuesday 21st March, two Year 12 students, Aimee Cupper and Emily Broomfield competed in the regional heats of the Public Speaking Competition at St Peter’s School, Bournemouth, hosted by The Catenian Association. Both students had to write their own speeches on a topic of their choice and present it to an audience, competing against 15 other students from schools in the South West.
Despite rigorous competition and an outstanding quality of speeches, Aimee Cupper came 1st runner up after losing out to a powerful speech on immigration by a student from St Peter’s School. Both Aimee and Emily did incredibly well and have had fantastic feedback from the Catenian Association.
The competition will be held again next year and Ms. Morgan is on the lookout for competitors who will be joining 6th form in September, to coach and prepare a speech for next year’s competition.
