For the second year, all Y9 pupils have taken part in this County-wide competition organised by Cheltenham Festivals and sponsored by EDF. After receiving training in their Science lessons, pupils gave a 3-minute presentation about any aspect of Science that interested them and were judged on 3 criteria: Clarity; Content; Charisma.

The class winners were:

9A Lucy Arthur and Millie Davis

9D Luke Goddard and Amal Patel

9E David Parsonage and Edward Watine

9P Amy James and Amy Howard

9T Sam Thomas and Charlotte Casey

Following additional training by specially selected young engineers, these pupils took part in the school final on February 1st in front of a large audience and 3 judges.

Amy James will now take part in a 2-day master class on Presentation skills and a day of Work Experience at a local company. She will then represent Pate’s at the County final, to be held at EDF, Gloucester on March 24th. We wish her luck!
