Speaking Competition at Farnborough Hill - January 2020
We were represented by a team of Year 11 students to compete in the English Speaking Union Public Speaking Competition Heat 4 at Farnborough Hill last week. Seven teams from five schools competed in this heat. The standard was significantly higher than the previous week's heat. Again, we were the only state school.
Congratulations to Freya I in Year 11 who won the prize for Best Speaker. The event organisers praised Freya's speech on Greta Thunberg as the best speech they had ever heard in the competition!
Well done also to Johnny B and Sean T who completed the Calthorpe team; they were a credit to the school.
This will be a platform to launch a Calthorpe Park School public speaking competition - watch this space!
