West Hatch High School student runner-up in prestigious London public speaking competition

A West Hatch High School student has been awarded the runners-up prize at a prestigious London public speaking competition.

Year 11 student Adil Sait was up against students from City of London girls and boys schools at The Company of Educators’ Public Speaking Competition held in the City of London last night (Wednesday).

The Company (soon to become a Livery) represents educators of all levels.

The public speaking prize is one of the most prestigious awards for schools.

Adil spoke for four minutes on ‘have young people who participated in the London riots of 2011 forfeited their legal and human rights?’

He then answered questions for three minutes.

The competition was won by Westminster Academy.

Adil said: "This has been an amazing experience and it has been great to meet like-minded students from other London schools."
