Students begin work for the Jack Petchey "Speak out Challenge"!
We are glad to announce that our students, for another year running, will be taking part in this year's Jack Petchey 'Speak out Challenge' 2017.
On Thursday 09th March 2017, 26 of our year 10 students took part in the first all day Jack Petchey workshop with 'Speak Out' trainer Elaine Powell, here at Ark EGA.
Student's spent the day developing their public speaking skills, and ending the day with an opportunity to present a 5 minute speech on a topic of their choice, in front of Ms Powell and their peers.
It was truly an inspirational session, as we saw our young people grow in confidence, work together and speak on some fantastic topics that they were truly passionate about.
We wish our students all the best as they continue on through this journey to the finals; where they will present and give their speech before important delegates in Lambeth later this year.
