Youth Speaks teams prepare for competition

Youth Speaks Preparation

Two teams of Year 8 students are preparing for the annual Rotary Club ‘Youth Speaks’ competition. Their topics for debate are ‘Should we colonise Mars?’ And ‘Should Social Media be used in schools?’.

Alistair Atkins, Year 8, said, “Preparing for Youth Speaks has helped me gain courage to speak in front of an audience and it has helped to improve my persuasive writing skills. I am really looking forward to the competition and I hope both our teams do well.”
