Colyton students have lots to talk about
PUBLISHED: 17:30 08 December 2016
Two Colyton Grammar School teams successfully competed in the first round of the English-Speaking Union’s public speaking competition at Blundell’s School, Tiverton.
The year 11 team qualified for the Exeter and district final, with team member Edmund Kelly, being named best speaker after making a speech asking, “Is America still a land of opportunity?”. Other team members were Nathan Boland and Tristan Cox.
Similarly, the year nine team of Talia Treble, Olga Diavastis and speaker Grace Stephens, expertly navigated a speech discussing whether “Ecotourism is not as good as it sounds”.
Naomi Ellyn, Todd Olive and other sixth formers coached the students in a weekly public speaking club.
