Jack Petchey Speakout Challenge

Abbs Cross Success in the Jack Petchey Speakout Challenge

We are very proud of Jasper’s success in the regional Speak out Challenge final at St Edward’s Academy this month.

In a field of over twenty very impressive competitors, he was placed in the top three. His speech, ‘The Bald Truth’, was delivered with the flair and confidence we have grown to expect from the very talented Jasper. His speech was both funny and deeply moving and deserves to be seen by many more people.

Thank you also to Mr O’Brien (Teacher of English) who puts in a lot of time and effort for the students who compete.
