Words of wisdom from primary school pupils at Fylingdales School won them this year’s Speak Out competition.

The team, consisting of Amy Hutton (chairman), Lily May Newman (speaker) and Perdita Glaysher (proposer) spoke on the title “Home-made cooking is always better than fast food”.

They tried to tempt the judges with some home-made biscuits but the panel had already made up its mind.

The Rotary Club of Whitby hosted the public speaking competition for year 6 pupils at the Saxonville Hotel last Wednesday.

The judges said that Amy spoke with clarity and confidence, showing a bright, sparkling approach and whetting the audience’s appetite in particular when she mentioned home-made pies.

Lily May continued the theme by outlining the story of a pie from factory to plate, reinforcing the note of humour by pointing out their total lack of reference to horse-meat and Perdita was easy to listen to, making reference to the team’s thorough research in support of their argument.

They were the only team to use props with their tin of biscuits.

Mike Stones, organising the event on behalf of Whitby Rotary Club, said: “Everyone who took part was a winner here.

“The children seemed to enjoy it greatly. It is evident that they have approached it all with a sense of fun and gained much from the experience. “

The other schools taking part were Ruswarp, Airy Hill, Stakesby, Seton and Sleights.
