We are very proud of our students when they go to public events, able to speak well to or in front of others, showing off their skills and ideas. Recently, students in Years 11 and 13 have done just this.
“Getting Court” Gosford Hill Student speaks at ceremony
Miss Clinch and a group of Year 11 students have been participating in the first Getting Court initiative that enables young people to understand the criminal justice system, by meeting the professionals involved in it. At the final presentation evening, one Year 11 student, Hannah, was asked to speak in front of a large audience.

Public speaking competition, Wychwood School
For the first time GHS Sixth Formers participated in the Rotary Youth Speaks competition, being the only state school in the area to do so. Afshan, Najiha and Mary-Ellen were the speaker, chairperson and vote of thanks respectively. In front of an audience of about 200 and against 4 other experienced teams, the girls spoke confidently. Afshan’s speech, entitled “Am I Feminazi?” drew much praise for tackling a still-important issue. For many people, speaking in public is their greatest fear, but our students overcame this and performed well.
