Goole Academy Students Enter Youth Speaks Competition

The Rotary Youth Speaks Competition is a well-established and successful competition organised and promoted by Rotary International in Great Britain and Ireland. It is a four-stage competition which is designed to support and encourage the development of effective communication skills.

This competition aims to offer young people:
• experience in speaking on a public platform as a member of a team
• an incentive to formulate ideas on topical subjects
• discipline in dealing with a topic in a limited time
• the opportunity of learning and practising high standards of expression, presentation and appearance
• impartial feedback and assessment of performance by experienced adjudicators

Our team received the following feedback from John Sweetman; President Rotary Club of Goole Youth Projects Liaison Officer:

"A note to say how much I enjoyed Goole's team presentation at the Youth Speaks Competition.

I thought they spoke with passion about their view of identity in today's world and they can be proud of themselves and the school can be proud of them."
