The ESB qualification is very valuable, teaching pupils presentation, public speaking and listening skills and developing their confidence.
“This is an outstanding achievement for the School.”
The English Speaking Board is a national body which provides graded assessments for pupils. For the exam, the children had to recite a poem of their own choice, read a passage from a book and give a presentation on a chosen topic without notes. They spoke in front of examiners and peers and answered questions.
Pupils and staff worked towards the exams during lunchtimes and also practised at home.Categories: PREP SCHOOL
