Thanks to a donation from the SUS, Lower School pupils were able to benefit from a public speaking workshop run by oracy trainers from the English Speaking Union. After some initial sessions to build up confidence and develop an understanding of how to formulate a structured argument and how to use verbal and non-verbal techniques, the pupils worked in groups to create a pitch to sell a summer holiday and use persuasive speaking to convince someone to try a new food. The day culminated in everyone writing a speech to get themselves elected to the School Council in which they had to develop a powerful and convincing argument for the changes that they would bring about.
