Youth Speaks Success!
On Thursday, we took three Year Six children to Penponds School to represent Bodriggy Academy in the Rotary Club’s Youth Speaks Competition. Youth Speaks is a public speaking competition in which a team of three (chairperson, speaker, vote of thanks) present a debate in a very formal way. There were six schools competing on the day, and two would be announced to go through to the next round.
After weeks of practice, our team delivered highly polished speeches, and despite the nerves, appeared confident at all times. The speeches were judged by a team of adjudicators, and we were all delighted to find out that Bodriggy was one of the winning teams. Well done to Keiana, Eliza and Fallon who will now represent Bodriggy Academy in the next round against teams from the Penzance, Truro and Falmouth areas. We are very proud of you.
