Maxwell to represent England and Wales in International Public Speaking Competition
There was good news recently for Maxwell Duncan who has just learnt that he has been selected to represent England and Wales in an International Public Speaking competition from 14th to 18th May 2018. The competition, organised and hosted by the English Speaking Union (ESU), will see 50 speakers from 50 countries taking part. Maxwell qualified for this prestigious selection by winning 'Outstanding Personality' at the ESU's national finals earlier this year - surely one of the best-named (and appropriately bestowed) awards in the competition. The week-long event which takes place in London will involve competition heats, public speaking training as well as cultural activities and social events. Mr Land, who coaches the public speaking team at the school, expressed his delight at this 'well-deserved' honour. Congratulations to Maxwell from us all.
