Boys Impress at Lecture Competition
Friday, 08 February 2013
Bolton School Boys' Division English Department has held a Lecture Competition for all pupils in Years 7 to 10. Over Christmas, teachers asked the boys to prepare a presentation on an interesting topic that they could present to their classmates.
The best pupil presentation in each class was then chosen to go through to the finals, which were held in the Great Hall at lunchtimes and watched by the whole year group. The finals were judged by senior staff, including the Headmaster. To be able to speak eloquently, authoritatively and engagingly to an audience of well over a hundred is a significant achievement. The level of research and effort that went into many of the presentations was most impressive.
The following were the eventual winners:
Year 7 - George Taylor (7E): 'Monsters in the Ancient World'
Year 8 - Sammy Gatenby-Brown (8C): 'Racial segregation in the USA'
Year 9 - Thaw Chit (9D): 'Nanotechnology'
Year 10 – Oliver Bond (10F): ‘Magic’
