SCHOOLS FRENCH PUBLIC SPEAKING COMPETITION 2018 – SENIOR CLASS
The Senior Class of the fourth French Public Speaking Competition for schools, organised by Epsom Rotary together with Epsom and Ewell Town Twinning Association took place at Epsom College on Tuesday 6th March. The Mayor of Epsom, Councillor Liz Frost, attended and presented the prizes, and we were pleased to welcome also Anne Peck, representing the twinning committee of our twin town, Chantilly.
A small but enthusiastic audience of teachers, fellow pupils and members of the Rotary Club and the Twinning Association heard presentations from four candidates from Epsom College and Rosebery School. As usual the standard was high, causing the judges much thought before awarding first prize to Elina Patouridou from Epsom College. Runner up was Samantha Perrin of Rosebery School.
Congratulating all the candidates the Mayor compared the language skills of today with those of former generations. Councillor Clive Woodbridge, Chairman of the Town Twinning Association, referred to the particular importance of effective communication in current “interesting” times.
Thanks were given to Epsom College, the organisers, the judges and especially to the dedicated teachers who had so encouraged the competitors.
