All of the Year 7 pupils who have read in Chapel this academic year, congregated for a group photograph this morning. One 11 or 12-year-old was selected from Drake and Blake Houses each week to read during morning Chapel and, after some coaching in public speaking and tips on how to project their voices in the cavernous Chapel, each bravely spoke in front of some 750 people. Philip McConnell, School Chaplain, said, “This is wonderful opportunity for our youngest pupils to develop their public speaking skills and challenge themselves, which in turn helps to boost confidence. Well done to them all.”
