2nd semi-final of the eloquence competition

The second semi-final of the eloquence competition took place in Laeken (EEB4) on Wednesday 15 February.

Our school was represented by Mathilde Peeters who gave a speech based on a quote from Victor Hugo: "There comes an hour when protesting is no longer enough: after philosophy, action is needed". The 2nd candidate of EEB2, Léa Langemeyer, made the words of Nina Simone resound: "I will tell you what freedom is: not to be afraid".

The 1st semi-final of the 2nd edition of the Brussels European Schools Eloquence Competition took place on Wednesday 8 February at EEB2. 

The eight candidates were welcomed by Sophie O'Sullivan and David Métivier, teachers of literature at Woluwé and members of the project steering committee. In turn, they gave a speech on one of the four topics they had prepared. They also took part in an improvisation exercise. On topics as varied as how to eat or the notion of a model or difference, the speakers won over the audience. The jury, made up of teachers, parents and students representing the four Brussels schools, praised the quality of the performances and selected the first three finalists: Emma Freytag (EEB3), Antoine Léopold (EEB4) and Thaïs Verplaetse (EEB2). To be continued!
