More success for Trevelyan School on Friday night as they not only hosted a mighty fine event but their Intermediate team also won through to the District Finals in Reading on 27th February.
Ten teams from Wycombe, Ascot, Sunningdale and Windsor took Youth Speaks to the next level. All teams did themselves proud and brought their “A” game. In the Intermediate section, “Money can buy happiness” was convincingly debated by Fiona Winters and Anushka Sagar, ably chaired by George Burden. Matilda Kemp & Ruth Mendy joined them for the photo to celebrate the team win with Windsor & Eton Rotary Club’s President Ralph Cooper whose daughter happens to be Head Teacher at Trevelyan, so he was beyond proud.
Wycombe Abbey won the senior competition with their debate “Can I Change the World?”. Chair Alyssa Conradie, Proposer Felicite Baroudel, Opposer Chloe Davis offered very convincing arguments from both sides just taking the top spot from Windsor Girls.
Youth Speaks is the most rewarding competition for not just the competitors ;) We would like to congratulate all teams who took part, as follows:
Intermediate judges Joanna Olamer-Scott, Clem Virgo, Dr John Eckhart (chair).
Senior judges Veronica Stabbins, Brian Lee and Roger Clark (chair).
