Youth Speaks Competition
Each year around January we host a Youth Speaks competition in Swanmead school for Key stage 2 pupils. We have entrants from local pirmary and middle schools and it is always well recieved. This competition gives teams of 3 pupils the opportunity to talk in front of an audience about a topic of their choice. THe choice of topics is always interesting. This event is sponsored by Greenslade Taylor Hunt.
Two candidates have been selected to attend the annual RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership) course during the February Half term. They will benefit from a week long intensive training course designed to develop their talents in a wide range of disciplines.
