Youth Speaks – First Round
In November we held our First Round event in this year’s Rotary Youth Speaks Competition at both intermediate and senior level.
Organised by James Gartrell and his Youth Committee, supported by many members of the Club, and hosted by Burgess Hill Girls, an enthralling evening unfolded as we listened to the excellent performances of the teams from Burgess Academy and Burgess Hill Girls.
Our keynote speaker was Caroline Nicholls, the High Sheriff of West Sussex, who gave us a fascinating insight into the role.
In turn, the adjudicators did an excellent job judging the performances and we wish the winning teams from Burgess Hill Girls every success in the next round, which takes place in January.
Our thanks go to all who supported and helped the Club to stage this event and to the students, teachers and parents for their hard work and preparation. It was much appreciated.
