Public speaking triumph

LSU Triumph in the ESU Churchill Public Speaking Regional Semi-Final

On 7th February, LSU’s public Speaking team claimed a glorious victory in the London regional semi-final of the English School Union's prestigious Churchill Public Speaking Competition! Facing stiff competition from schools including Henrietta Barnett School, Friern Barnet School, and Notting Hill and Ealing High School, our two year 10 students exhibited remarkable rhetorical skill, confidence and nuanced insight, securing a well-deserved victory in the competition which took place online for the first time.

Our speaker, Emma C, captivated the audience with her speech on the topic, "Printed books and newspapers have outlived their usefulness." Her articulate and engaging delivery resonated with everyone in attendance, the judges giving particular praise to her ability to balance both sides of the argument.

Next it was over to our Chair and Questioner, Eliza G. Eliza's adept compering and incisive interrogation of a speech on the theme "We buy things we don't need, with money we don't have, to impress people we don't like," displayed exceptional articulacy under pressure, as well as her enthusiastic and compelling presenting style.

Huge congratulations to Emma and Eliza for their outstanding achievement and good luck to them in the Regional Final on the 18th March!
