Public Speaking

The hills were snow topped and the sun shining when our AKS Intermediate team came to perform at the District finals held in the beautiful surroundings of Windermere School last Saturday.  Our team of Vaani V (Main Speaker); Edward S (Chairman) and Toby C (Vote of Thanks) admired the view from the terrace – an unspoilt Lakeland landscape – whereupon we were all taken to the Lecture Hall.  Ten teams from Lancashire and Cumbria competed – some teams containing Year 9 students. Our Year 7 public speakers gave an excellent presentation on ‘Should we all go vegan?’, but the standard was very high and we were unsuccessful this year.  Nonetheless, the judges were very complimentary to the members of our team, and it was fascinating to see the variety of topics and speaking styles on offer at the competition.

 My thanks to Vaani, Edward and Toby for all the time they spent learning and rehearsing, and to their parents for taking them up to the Lake District so early on a Saturday.  Pictured our team are shown receiving their participation certificates from Rotary Club 1190 presented by the President of the Windermere branch.
