Blenheim Champions start their 2019 Competition

After OSA’s victory in the 2018 Churchill Public Speaking Competition, this year’s team and their accompanying researchers visited Blenheim Palace on Monday before this year’s.

Last year’s researchers, Flo and Max, and last year’s Chair, Ruby, all in Year 8, are joined now by three Year 7 students, Stella, Aqsa and Laura. They were taken on a tour of the Palace by education officer, Catherine Talbot, to learn more about the life of Winston Churchill and the history of the Palace.

The morning finished with a public speaking workshop – where they focused on making their speeches – on gender equality – more effective for those judging the competition in March.
