Ellesmere College were the overall winners of last night's Business and Professional Women Oswestry Branch Public Speaking Competition.
Ellesmere College was one of seven teams from Shropshire Schools who competed in the competition which took place on 15th November at the Wynnstay Hotel in Oswestry.
Ellesmere College entered two teams comprising of six pupils from the Senior School:
Team A - Hadleigh Roberts, Christopher Bevan and David Anders-Richards
Team B - William Bartlett, Elizabeth Boffey and Grace Kendall.
David Anders-Richards won the award for 'The Best Expresser of Thanks' and Ellesmere's A Team won the overall competition. They will be competing in the next round, early next year which will take place in Blackburn. If the team wins this round they will be competing in the national finals.
Claire Crampton, English Teacher and the teacher in charge of debating at Ellesmere College commented 'Competition was fierce with some excellent speeches prepared and delivered by all those taking part. Both of our teams did very well with everyone keeping impressively calm and performing very well on the night. It was an excellent evening with very high standard contributions from all the teams. Well done to all and a big thanks to the Business and Professional Women for hosting the event.
