Koshin and Fahima speak out!
Our Year 10 students have been polishing their public speaking skills this term. Over two weeks, they took part in workshops led by a trainer from the Jack Petchey Foundation, where each student prepared a speech and learned how to deliver it for maximum impact.
Their trainer was impressed, saying, ‘The students were fantastic to work with. The atmosphere in the room was consistently engaged and the ideas exchanged and developed were brilliant. I loved getting to watch the students share their stories with each other in a supportive and compassionate manner. And their speeches were inspiring and well delivered.'
Competing at a school assembly after the workshops, Labiba Akther, Reddwan Jahir and Njomza Bashkurti all delivered great speeches, while Koshin Nassib and Fahima Abdul won places at the regional final of the Jack Petchey Speak Out Challenge.
And last Wednesday, in front of an appreciative audience at Regent High School, Koshin and Fahima delivered their eloquent and well-crafted speeches at the Camden regional final. Both students performed with great confidence and style – and Koshin's 'more than a game' speech about football even got a special mention from the Mayor of Camden.
Congratulations and well done to Koshin and Fahima!
