Jack Petchey’s “Speak Out” Challenge

Each year over 19,000 students across London and Essex take part in Jack Petchey’s “Speak Out” Challenge! the world’s largest public speaking competition. There are 37 different Regional Champions and these speakers are among the top 0.2% of young speakers in London and Essex.

Coloma is extremely proud to congratulate our very own Chiara Laferla from Year 10 on her outstanding achievement as she came first in the Croydon Regional Final. Her speech on the power of fatherhood was both moving and dynamic.

Considering the very strong competition on the night from the best speakers from every other Croydon school, this achievement is something to celebrate.
