School teams from Downham and King’s Lynn academies battled it out to have the last word in a speaking competition organised by the Rotary Club of Lynn.
Rotary Youth Speaks Competition is a successful competition organised and promoted through Rotary as part of its work with schools and young people.
Downham Academy were declared the winners of round one and they later attended, with their teachers, a club dinner at Lynn Golf Club where they repeated their successful speech to Rotarians and their partners.
The next round of the contest takes place in February and will be against competition from participating schools throughout Rotary District 1080 (East Anglia).
This competition aims to offer young people experience in speaking on a public platform as a member of a team and to encourage youngsters to formulate ideas on topical subjects.
