Year 10 students compete at Regional Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge Finals
Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge Regional Finals 2012 took place for Hounslow last week, with two of our Year 10 students taking part. The event is sponsored by The Speaker’s Trust, which aims to improve awareness of the skills needed for public speaking.
Jessica Pearce and Nabeela Mulbocus both won their individual heats in November, when the Speak Out Challenge visited The Heathland School. The girls were up against a range of pupils from other schools in the area who were all hoping to win a place at the Grand Final which takes place later in the year. They had to speak for several minutes on a topic of their choice to impress the judges. Both girls performed brilliantly, and congratulations go to both of them!
