It has been a busy couple of months with lots of activities interspersed with a couple of bouts of illness so that’s my excuse for the blog getting rather behind. So now my late New Year resolution to catch up with reports on all activities.
At the end of January I accompanied the Benenden Youth Speaks teams to the Kent county round of Youth Speaks, the Rotary International Public Speaking Competition. Both Junior and Senior teams performed with enthusiasm and proficiency in front of a large audience at the competition which was held at the Newline Academy Maidstone. Benenden competed against seven strong teams from schools across Kent and Sussex. Sadly, no prizes this year but a great experience for the girls. They all agreed it was very useful and enjoyable and they would definitely want the school to enter again.
