Jack Petchey's Speak Out Challenge

Jack Petchey's Speak Out Challenge is back at Hurstmere for another year! The public speaking workshop with 30 Year 10's was the most successful that I have ever been involved with. The boys were so skilled and confident by the afternoon session, that it was a hard task to judge who should be through to the assembly stages of the competition, where one candidate is selected to represent us in the regional final, competing against other 14 schools in the Bexley borough. 

Highly commended certificates went to (for progress and moving out of their comfort zone):

Zak Long, Ethan Driscoll, Adam Campion.

Final 5 to be judged in a future year 8 assembly are:

Harry Henty
Timi Padoni
Max Boles
Conor Daly 
Lucas Myers

Mrs Murphy
School Co-ordinator for Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge
