Harriett Wins Public Speaking Speaking Competition

Published 5 February 2024

Congratulations to Harriett (13P3) who won the internal Articulation heat on Tuesday and will go on to represent St Bart’s at the regional heat.

Articulation is a public speaking competition, run by the National Gallery, where students must speak for ten minutes about a piece of art of their choosing. This is the first year St Bart’s has entered.

Four students entered, Harriett and three Year 12 students: Mikey (D4), Laura (P3) and Oliver (C7). All four gave impressive presentations and made it extremely hard for the three adjudicators – Mr Robbins, Mr Keetch and Mrs Nicholls – to pick a winner. In the end it was Harriett’s presentation, on a sculpture ‘Anatomy of a Hug’ by artist Luna Lu, which took the top spot.

The Regional Heat is at MK Gallery on Thursday 1 February and Harriett will compete against speakers from schools from across the South East of England.
