Pupils impressed with the strength of their convictions in a public speaking competition.

They made a range of speeches in the Bury St Edmunds Rotary Club’s middle school public speaking competition.

Hosted by County Upper School, the competition featured two sections - one for a Key Stage 2 team and the other for Key Stage 3 team.

Each team of three included a speaker who introduces the pupils and their topic; a main speaker who presents the information and a third to sump up and give a vote of thanks.

The result was a dead heat between Howard and Westley Middle Schools with Horringer Court third.

The school’s are part of the Bury All-Through Trust and teams were coached by Year 9 and 10 pupils from County Upper.

Every entrant received a certificate while winners and runners-up were awarded book tokens.

There was a shield for the school with the most points overall.

Vicky Neale, head at County Upper, said: “All the teams did very well and the judges were rightly impressed.

“Confident public speaking is a hugely valuable skill and all the schools are very grateful to the Rotary Club for organising the event each year.”
