Talking the talk

BPW Public Speaking Competition

Two teams of Westholme Sixth Form students ventured out in the cold weather to take part in a public speaking competition at Foxfields, Billington. Our first team consisted of Gabriela Sharp, Evie Jones and Olivia Ball. Gabriela and Olivia took to the stage with Adam Desai from Tauheedul Islam Boys High School and spoke very well with Olivia getting the best expresser of thanks.


Hannah Patel, Katie Goodier and Sonia Karimkhazand were in the second Westholme team and they all spoke outstandingly, with Hannah winning best chair person. The team were also awarded runners up and will represent Westholme at the regional round.

Despite Westholme not winning the overall prize, everyone thoroughly enjoyed competing in this fantastic event. Well done to everyone who took park and good luck for the regional round!
