What a success the Global Goals evening was! The evening included a
presentation about the Global Goals delivered by Windhill21's team of 'Goalkeepers' and the judging of the World Speech Day finalists who performed their speeches inspired by the Global Goals. The children’s speeches oozed conviction and exuded high skill and confidence; the passion in their delivery evoked a few tears of pride and incredulity in the audience!
150 people attended the event, amongst whom were the Mayor, George Cutting; Suzy Harvey, High Sheriff of Hertfordshire; members of the Bishop’s Stortford Rotary Club, Oxfam, Royal British Legion and The Green Party and other distinguished community guests. The panel of judges comprised of Suzy Harvey, High Sheriff of Hertfordshire; Emma White, a Hertfordshire and our very own music teacher; Jonathan Forgham, Educational Consultant and Norma Symmonds, Councillor. Whilst the judges were agonising over their decision of who would be the KS1 and KS2 overall winners, the year 5 and 6 entertained the audience with their spellbinding Performance Poetry offerings. Sienna E (KS1) and Sonny G (KS2) were the overall winners, delivering speeches about Fair Trade and Gender Inequality (for boys and men!). The Mayor, George Cutting and Suzy Harvey presented the trophies.
