Spiders Debated at Youth Speaks Competition

Truro School Prep pupils were delighted to be the hosts of the first round of this year’s Youth Speaks Competition 2024, designed to encourage the development of creativity and presentation skills essential to the art of public speaking.

Speakers from schools from around the Truro area joined Truro School Prep’s team of Jenny (Chair), Atti (Speaker) and Rosie (Vote of Thanks) as this year’s competition for the Rotary Club of Truro Boscawen (Truro Area) got off to a flying start.

Having won last year’s round, Truro School Prep had the honour of hosting the competition this year. And on the menu for discussion for the Truro pupils? ‘Why is Everyone Scared of Spiders?”

Pupils from Devoran School and Perran-ar-worthal School also spoke eloquently on ‘How is the cost-of-living crisis affecting children’ and ‘Artificial Intelligence’.

Well done to all of the speakers who spoke so eloquently and passionately and thanks to the Rotary Club of Truro Boscawen and their adjudicators. Congratulations to Perran-ar-worthal who progress to the next round.
