Simran speaks up

Moreton Hall student Simran Sajan has been recognised as one of 12 Young Speakers of the Year. Thousands of candidates take part in the annual English Speaking Board (ESB) assessments in the hope of being one of the finalists. For four years, Moreton Hall students have been selected, and this year, Simran has kept up the tradition, competing against almost 30,000 applicants.

As her topic, Simran discusses eating disorders, and to stand out from candidates who talked on a similar subject matter, Simran’s talk sparked a conversation on the introduction of mental health education to school pupils as part of the curriculum.

Moreton Hall’s Head of Spoken English Merriel Halsall-Williams says, “Simran’s speech was engaging and thought-provoking. She continues the legacy of young women from Moreton Hall succeeded in these competitive and challenging competitions.”

The speeches will be showcased in Liverpool in November.
