On 4th February three teams competed in the Leamington round of the Rotary Club’s ‘Youth Speaks’ competition. The competition involves teams of three – a chairperson, speaker and vote of thanks – giving a presentation on the topic of their choice. This year, we competed against Kingsley School in the Intermediate and Senior categories. For the second year running, we won both categories, although admittedly Kingsley failed to produce a team for the Senior event so our two teams had to compete against each other!
The Trinity Teams consisted of:
Jude, Gabriel and Olivia talking about whether modern pop can be considered art.
Holly, Tom and Helena speaking in favour of giving the vote to 16 year olds.
Chris, Tom and Izzy giving their views on why the education system should be reformed.
The first two teams will be competing in the regional finals at Bablake School in Coventry on 7th March. Last year we were runners up in the Senior event at this level so we have high hopes of being placed again. The chief judge was very impressed with our teams and congratulated us on the incredibly strong speakers we had in all teams.
Very well done to all!
