Yesterday was the big day for our Y5s. Joining with Y5s from other Catholic schools plus members of Nicholas Breakspear, the children shared a wonderful day at the Wyllyotts Theatre, where speeches and seminars on leadership and Catholic Social Teaching were delivered as part of our Oracy for Advocacy project. The morning consisted of the children moving around in groups to listen to seminars about how their schools work for the common good. The Pope Paul seminar speakers were Amber, Lucy L, Siena and Vincent and they were fantastic, noticeably building in confidence as the morning progressed and as they delivered their talks more and more times.
The afternoon saw the 150-200 children involved congregate in the main auditorium for the main speeches. Eraldo gave a confident and persuasive speech about why we should care for our planet, and Julia gave a personal and impassioned presentation about the need for equality in this world. Both fit beautifully into our school’s mission which strives to develop leaders of the future who will help to build a better world. Listen to their speeches here:
I am so proud of all the speakers and am confident that we have fantastic future leaders in our midst!
