Jack Petchey's Speak Out Challenge

Jack Petchey's Speak Out Challenge

Jack Petchey’s “Speak Out” Challenge! is a programme run by Speakers Trust and funded by the Jack Petchey Foundation. It is founded on the belief that everybody should have the skills, confidence and desire to speak in public, and are dedicated to helping people of all ages and levels achieve this. It is the largest speaking competition for young people in the world and, yet again, Bolingbroke's Year 10 students decided to let their voices join the furore.

In a day long workshop, twenty five specially selected students discussed issues that sparked passion. From the importance of everyday adventures, to the and trials and tribulations of siblings; from the root causes of London's gang problems, to getting lost in Disneyland.

The smorgasbord of topics were a tribute to the diverse community of our school. The workshop whittled our group down to a strong final seven, one of whom will be voted through in the grand assembly final.

The chosen speaker will then represent Bolingbroke Academy at Wandsworth Borough Final at 6pm on 1st March at St Cecilia’s C of E School. The speaker will be in the running to win the jackpot of £2000!

The Grand Final will be held at The Cambridge Theatre in London's West End on July 2nd 2018.
