A huge congratulations to 5 of our Year 6 pupils who have been working extremely hard on their very own TEDx talks. We were delighted to find out last week that their videos were to be published onto the TEDx YouTube channel, which currently has over 25 million subscribers.

The theme was seeing the future clearly, with each pupil writing, performing and filming a TEDx talk each with their own take on idea. Giovanni, Maia, Misha, Chili and Ryan worked really hard to share their ideas with the world, and we hope you enjoy watching them as much as we did!

Principal, Sebastian Hepher played his part in supporting the pupils with their talks and had this to say on the topic,

‘Anyone who has ever watched a TEDx talk or attended the event itself, will have been highly impressed with the speaker’s ability to hold an audience, without notes or props, videos or gizmos. It is far from easy and one naturally associates these demonstrations with highly successful adults.

The pupils of Eaton Square who were selected to deliver their own TEDx talks earlier this year have surpassed themselves in their final performances. The topics have been varied, extremely interesting and well researched, and delivered in unique, memorable, believable and engaging styles – I congratulate you all.’
