Crispin's Flawless Performance at 'Speak Out' Challenge Regional Final
Crispin, Year 10, fought off stiff competition to be selected as our academy’s representative at the Jack Petchey “Speak Out” Challenge Southwark regional final, held at Harris Girls’ Academy, East Dulwich on Wednesday 28 March.
The “Speak Out” Challenge is the world's largest public speaking competition for youth, with over 9,000 participants across London and its surrounding areas.
"Health is Wealth"
After weeks of hard work, refining and rehearsing his speech, Crispin delivered a flawless performance. “Health is Wealth” was the title of his speech and he spoke with great poise about young people and the positive impact of leading a healthy lifestyle. The speech was thought-provoking and well organised as well as humorous.
The competition was fierce, with 18 other participants from schools across Southwark, delivering some excellent speeches on a range of interesting topics. Despite not quite making the top three, Crispin's speech was met with an array of positive comments from both the judges and audience. He was undoubtedly a favourite going into the final announcement but we can say without reservation, he did his family, the school and more importantly, himself proud. Well done, Crispin!
