Saturday 9 November, Magdalene College, Cambridge
Congratulations to Bradley Setchell, Laura Saunders and Ieuan Cox who represented the school at the English Speaking Union competition at Cambridge University on Saturday. The students were invited to participate as winners of their regional round last year. Bradley spoke on the topic "Celebrity News is the opium of the people". Everyone commented on how brilliant his speech was. Ieuan asked thoughtful questions and Laura was an outstanding chair.
Stephen Roberts of the ESU wrote to the school to say: “The contribution of every member of the team was first rate. I know they figured a great deal in the judges’ discussions and that final results were a very close run thing. English Martyrs’ has become one of the jewels in our Public Speaking Crown and I am always delighted to see them in action”.
Well done to the team and thank you to Ms Fones for preparing them.
