Rotary Youth Speaks
On Monday 9 November, St George’s hosted the Ascot local heat of the Rotary Youth Speaks competition. St George’s was ably represented by two teams in the Senior Section: Camelia, Sophia and Beatrix; Sami, Hannah and Olivia. Although both teams spoke well, or in Sophia’s case sang well, we did not quite manage to secure the prizes. That said we were definitely a close second! In the Intermediate section it would not be an exaggeration to say that Olivia was the runaway winner of Best Speaker. She was animated as well as passionate and thoroughly deserved the accolade of Best Speaker.
Both teams performed exceptionally well and comprised Avah, Olivia and Blanca; Alexandra, Anja and Olivia. However, it was Olivia’s impressive speech, Avah’s engaging chairmanship and Blanca’s amusing vote of thanks that led them to victory.
All of the St George’s teams were well presented, articulate and beautifully composed – congratulations to all of you. It was a proud moment!
