Public Speaking Competition

On Wednesday 13th January, seven Year 8 students took part in the Rotary’s ‘Youth Speaks’ Public Speaking Competition held at Richard Huish. The students had to speak for 10 minutes on a topic of their choice, with the main speaker having a whopping 6 minutes of uninterrupted time to explore their chosen subject.

Year 10 Careers Day

On 15th January Year 10 students spent the day in 30 minute careers-taster sessions learning about industries as diverse as Construction, Retail, Engineering and the Army. Visitors provided students with a detailed overview of their employment to enable them to make better informed career decisions. This comes at a crucial time, as Year 10 are starting the process of information gathering prior to making post-16 training decisions. Thank you to all our visitors for giving up their time to support the careers programme at Kingsmead School.

Jonti was the only student from Kingsmead to take part in this challenge held at Wellington School.
