Schools from across Bexley took part in an Annual Public Speaking Competition last week.
On November 12 students spoke on topics concerning the price of water and water distribution.
Bexley Grammar’s team won the day with their speech, entitled: “Red Water: Just a splash in the cosmic pan”.
On the winning team were students Lara Sokunbi, Amy Lee, Menaka Santhakumar and Joey Beard.
Judges at the event were the Mayor of Bexley, Sybill Camsey, cabinet member for children’s services, Phillip Read and Thames Water representative Andrew Webb.
Winners and runners up on the day received trophies, with the winners also receiving the prestigious Brian Sams Memorial Cup.
Philip Read said: “This is always such an interesting and lively event. I am always impressed by the hard work, research and commitment these young people put in.
“All the speeches were well thought out, interesting and entertaining and my congratulations go to them all. I’d also like to thank Thames Water for supporting this special annual event.”
