Interhouse Public Speaking 2018
This term Years 7-10 took part in the annual Northfields interhouse public speaking competition. There were impressive, passionate and inspirational speeches. Topics ranged from deforestation to dance, cookery mishaps to Nelson Mandela. Of note was a very emotional speech on eating disorders and one on the dangers of drug abuse. Each student showed the range of the skills they had honed during English lessons and answered follow up questions thoughtfully. All finalists had clearly prepared well and showed great maturity.
All competitors should be very proud as it is challenging to speak in front of your peers about your passion. The English department would like to thank all students whether attentive audience or speaker for their contribution.
