Public Speaking Competition

Daring debates at the Public Speaking Competition

Despite the torrential downpours, four year ten students competed with un-dampened spirits in the ESU Public Speaking Competition on Monday. Debating a topic that may be controversial among many Y Pant students, the team argued that computer games have ruined the youth of today. In a fierce battle with other secondary schools in the Rhondda Cynon Taff, Y Pant students excelled and left many of their competitors tongue tied.

After weeks of rehearsals, Megan Brown, Juliet Johns, Daniel Evans and Dylan Bellis initiated a ferocious debate at Treorchi Comprehensive School. The students were praised by the judges and fulfilled their roles excellently. Megan Brown was captivating as the speaker and won the award for ‘Best Speaker’, Juliet Johns chaired with charisma and allure, and Daniel Evans was the intense questioner and won ‘Best Questioner’ in the competition.

The English department would like to thank the students involved for all their hard work and for representing the school so confidently. Judges and teachers alike were captivated by the calibre of the students and the future of debating at Y Pant School looks very bright indeed.
