Kate delivering her speech entitled ‘We are all Beyonce!’ and Kate receiving her award from the Mayor of Witham.
Congratulations to courageous Kate Buckle in Year 10 who represented New Rickstones Academy in the regional final of the Jack Petchey Speak Out competition. She was one of 21 speakers from local secondary schools who were brave enough to give a talk in front of the Mayor of Witham and a hall packed with families, various professionals and friends.
Kate’s speech was witty yet thought-provoking as she made the audience think about gender inequality. ‘I was terrified at the idea of doing this, but once I was up there, the adrenalin kicked in.’
Well done Kate. We at New Rickstones Academy are very proud of you.
