Public speaking competition

Report by Miss McGhee

Jordyn McNally (S4) and Grant Mackin (S3) participated in the Glasgow heats of the ESU Scotland Public Speaking Competition. They were held in Douglas Academy, Milngavie on Saturday 29th March and involved schools from all over Scotland.

Both speakers performed outstandingly and were highly praised by the judges for their passion and delivery.

Jordyn narrowly missed out on moving forwards, but Grant saw off competition from pupils from Bearsden Academy, The High School of Glasgow, Hutchesons’ Grammar and Douglas Academy – among others – to win himself a place in the national finals, which will be held in The Royal Society of Edinburgh in June.

Well done to both of our speakers. Jordyn’s speech appears elsewhere on the blog. Grant’s is being kept top secret for the present.
