The Public Speaking Competition Final took place this week. The theme for the afternoon was Roald Dahl and boys competed by reading extracts, reciting poetry and delivering speeches.
The standard was incredibly high with guest judge Mr Cory Lowde (Headmaster at Box Hill) stating that he was highly impressed at the abilities of our boys and had thoroughly enjoyed hearing them speak. He had great difficulty choosing a winner in each category but eventually decided that Raf Darwish (Wellington), who brilliantly read an extract from Roald Dahl’s ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ was the Junior Winner.
The Middle Competition was won by Rohan Eldred (Marlborough), who memorised and comically performed Dahl’s ‘Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf’ poem; Michael Cleaver (Nelson) won the Senior Competition with his skilfully unique speech on why David Walliams is the best-ever children’s author.
All the boys did exceptionally well to reach the final and should be hugely proud of their achievements.
