ESU public speaking competition
Congratulations to Esme Pykett, Ed Ledgard and Charlotte Omiotek for competing in the Bristol finals of the ESU public speaking competition on Thursday 24 January. Esme was thoughtful, thorough and inquisitive in her role as questioner, Ed was a welcoming, helpful and confident chair and Charlotte's speech on the dangers of social media was riveting and thought-provoking. The standard of competition was incredibly high and thanks to their hard work and careful preparation the Cotham team held their own and performed brilliantly. Charlotte was awarded the prize for best speaker, beating students from seven other Bristol schools to claim the prize. All three students did a fantastic job and should be very proud of what they achieved.
