Bath School Reaches National Final of the Youth Speaks Competitionnational

It was with great delight that the Ralph Allen School team not only won local and district heats of the Intermediate level  Youth Speaks competition but are this weekend, 10th may 2014, going against the rest of the country in the national finals in Maidstone, Kent.

The sponsoring club Rotary Club of Bath have donated £100 towards their expenses and District have matched that sum. We believe that is money well spent, not just to support the school team but to demonstrate our support for youth activities. These are potential Rotarians of the future whose hands hold the future of our organisation and here they are shown with the current Mayor of Bath who is also a potential Rotarian.SONY DSC

I have to now sadly add that this fantastic team did not win the finals.They did a very competent job but did not get among the finalists. However Katie Rutter (teacher in charge at Ralph Allen) says that they all enjoyed the experience and will certainly participate again next year. We now need to get his message out to other schools.
