Six students of Priory Ruskin Academy have won a local Youth Speaks competition, run by Rotary International.

This is the first time the school has entered the public speaking competition.

The winning students will now go on to compete in the district semi-finals at Bourne Academy in January.

Teachers Tanya Russell and Cheri Woodward worked with the students on their speeches. Mrs Russell said: “I feel that 
oratory is an essential skill in today’s society. In order for our pupils to be successful, we want to develop it as much as we can .”

The senior students who took part were Rui Cardoso, Vicky Greaves, Olly Haywood, and the juniors were Marcel Ludew, Rian Durham, Aaron Shepherd.

Tony Griffin and Marion Strange, of Rotary Club of Grantham Kesteven, said they were delighted Priory Ruskin had taken part and looked forward to the school getting involved in further activities with the 
club.
