We are delighted that James Tuitt Adjei’s Speech entitled ‘Life on the Spectrum’ won first place in the Jack Petchey Speak Out Competition regional finals on Wednesday 19th April.
Against extremely talented regional finalists from various schools in Hackney, James’ passionate, honest and emotional speech wowed the judges who awarded him first place. This is a fantastic achievement and we are all very proud of him.
We are also very proud of Eray Bektas who spoke articulately and earnestly about failure and success. Eray’s speech was so impressive that the Director of Barnado’s, Ghino Parker, has invited Eray to speak at the Barnado’s conference later in the year.
Both of these students showed real courage and impressive determination and were a credit to themselves, their families and all of us at Mossbourne Community Academy.

James’ speech, alongside the other 36 regional winners, will now be judged online before the final 15 are selected to compete at the Cambridge Theatre in London in the grand final on 10th July.
