Pupils from Horizon schools met at Litherland High School for a public speaking competition. The event was launched by Daisy, who was the winner of Litherland High’s public speaking competition. She talked very movingly about her cousin Joe, who is very precious to her.
Each of the primary schools present then put forward two pieces on the theme of ‘Healthy Relationships’. Groups, pairs and individuals all represented their schools well.
Daisy, James and Joel, who were the finalists in the LHS competition, had a difficult job judging the overall winner, who was Jessica from Litherland Moss.
Litherland Moss will keep the ‘Horizon Public Speaking’ trophy for a year.
After a quick refreshment break, the pupils were joined by anti-bullying ambassadors from Litherland High School in a workshop led by Bullybusters. Y5 and Y6 pupils found out about cyberbullying and what to do if it was a problem. Younger pupils worked together with children from other schools and ambassadors to think about what makes a good friend.
It was great to see pupils from all the schools and of all ages working together.
