From sugary drinks to performance enhancing drugs, it proved to be a fascinating afternoon at the Rotary Club of Northwich’s Primary Youths Speaks competition.
An audience of parents and grandparents looked on as the Grange teams claimed first and third spots in the six team competition with a team from Antrobus St Mark’s Primary School sandwiched in second place.
A team of Prep 6 pupils, Eve Peacock, Annabel Clancy, Ben Mather Dodd and Niamh Peck came first speaking on the dangers of sugary drinks. Whilst Ria Kumar, Thea Phillips-Kayes, Charlie Mann and Sienna Skipper, also all Prep 6, came third speaking on the subject of second homes.
Both teams were commended by the judges on their polished performances. Speaking in front of a room full of people can be nerve wracking and they performed splendidly.
“The adjudicators felt that once again the participants aged between nine and 10 had done amazingly well, and the level of their public speaking skill was excellent,” said a Rotary Club spokesperson, quoted in the Northwich Guardian.
