Wigan Rotary Club organised the preliminary Wigan heat of Youth Speaks at St John Rigby College on Tuesday June 12th.
Teams from three Wigan High Schools competed for the Peter Peacock Shield and a very high standard kept the audience enthralled. The subjects were varied. Shevington High School spoke enthusiastically about ‘the teaching of Mandarin Chinese through The Zhong wen Excellence Programme’. Hawkley Hall High School explored ‘the effects that schools can have on Mental Health’ and the overall winner, St Peters RC High School explored’ the problems we create through living life at a high speed’.
Wigan Rotary Club President Gwyneth Millard congratulated all the teams on their performances and commented on their confident presentations. The teams are now invited to enter for the district heat in February 2019.
