Uxbridge College scored another victory when it won through to the regional finals of Rotary Club's national public speaking competition.

The team from the College in Park Road, Uxbridge, triumphed over speakers from Windsor Boys' School in Windsor, Charters School in Sunningdale, and St Bernard's Catholic Grammar School in Langley.

The Uxbridge College team, consisting of Sabyha Khan (16), Ismaila Ngum (17) and Muska Nizami (18) made a clean sweep in the senior section - winning best team prize, and best speaker which went to Ismaila. The students, who spoke on the subject of 'Slang: Backward or Revolutionary?' are studying AS levels and A2 levels.

The zone final of the National Rotary Youth Speaks competition took place at St George's School in Ascot on Wednesday 3 February and was run by The Rotary Club of Ascot. The District Final takes place in High Wycombe in March, and winners will go through to the national final.

Laraine Smith, Principal of Uxbridge College, said: "This is brilliant news for our team and the whole of Uxbridge College. It was tough competition so we are particularly pleased to have won through against such impressive opponents. Uxbridge College has an incredibly diverse range of students and it is terrific to see them holding their own in this arena."

The Uxbridge College team triumphed over independent St Helen's School in Northwood at local heats run by the Rotary Club of Elthorne Hillingdon to win their place at the zone finals.
