Story posted on

“Speaking in public takes preparation and nerve – especially when you are just 13 years old!” reports Frome Rotary Club. 

“Undaunted by this challenge, a total of 15 pupils from Selwood Academy and Frome Community College took part in the Rotary Youth Speaks competition in front of a live audience and three judges – including the Frome Mayor Mark Dorrington, Hilary Kennard,  and Michael Joyce from sponsors Cooper and Tanner.

“After speaking on a topic of their choice for five minutes each, six pupils – working together in teams of three – were chosen to go through to the regional semi-finals of Youth Speaks on February 13th at 6pm in Standerwick Market.

“Going through to the regional semi-finals are two teams from Frome Community College comprising Willow Lamont Jiggens (best speaker); Sylvana Rogers; and Elianne Cann (team one); Isabel Witcombe; Samuel Young; and Patrycja Raczkowska (team two).

“For more information about the next round of the competition, or interest in supporting Rotary in future events and other competitions, please contact www.fromerotary.co.uk or email: fromerotary@gmail.com
