Double Success in the BPW Public Speaking Competition

Style + Substance = Success!


Six Westholme students participated in the BPW Public Speaking Competition at the Foxfields Hotel on Monday 15th November.  Westholme entered two teams: Maaham Ahmed, Romana Alli and Olivia Hunter were on one team and Emma Watts, Emma Sharples and Alice Hutchinson were on the other team. 


Both teams competed against Clitheroe Royal Grammar School, two teams from Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar School, Stonyhurst College and St Augustine’s RC High School.  In many cases the girls, from the Lower Sixth, were competing against Upper Sixth students.

Westholme managed to defeat the other teams and came first and second in the competition.  Romana Alli was awarded the prize for the Best Chairperson, Maaham Ahmed was awarded the prize for Best Speaker and Alice Hutchinson won the prize for Best Expresser of Thanks. 

Congratulations to the two teams – a splendid performance!
