This short, but interesting report in the 1st January edition of the Walthamstow Guardian, fills in yet a bit more history of the Drama Club and its successful involvement beyond the confines school – this time in the Essex County ‘Youth Speaks’ Finals and, indeed, of how Iris Moorshack, one of the original members, went on to represent the County!
The sole entry in Walthamstow’s ‘ Speech Competition that wasn’t’ in November, turned its talents to greater things last week – and took second prize in the County Speaking contest at Wicken Bonhunt.
The team, all from the drama group at Marsh Street Youth Centre, was one of twelve taking part in the competition and consisted of speaker, Iris Moorshack, chairman Michael Everett and proposer Reginald Stewart
But although they won only second place, they gained the greatest honour of the competition. Seventeen year old Miss Moorshack delivered her piece – on ‘Life in England’ so expertly that she has been chosen to represent Essex in the National Public Speaking Contest
