THREE pupils from Queen Anne’s School in Caversham took part in a public speaking competition.

Eleanor Townend, 13, Emma Hewlett, 14, and Talea Whitefoord, 12, who are in the junior public speaking team at the girls’ school in Henley Road, competed in Rotary’s Youth Speaks competition at the Blessed Hugh Faringdon School in Reading.

The girls chose “Equality for women in the workplace” as their topic as they took on teams from schools across the region but failed to quality for the next stage of the contest.

Emma said: “All of us were very nervous as it was our first competition as a team. Nevertheless, we enjoyed ourselves thoroughly listening to the other teams’ speeches and eventually presenting our own.”
