BSN’s second ever TEDxYouth event happened on Monday 4 November. And, we are still buzzing about it! Quite simply, it was amazing! We are so proud of everyone who took to the stage to share their heartfelt ideas about #BSNBreakingtheMould. This included 10 students from across the school, 2 members of staff and 4 external speakers. We also enjoyed student performances by the Drama Club, Junior Choir and Rock Band. We listened to a piano solo, and 2 singers (one had even written their own song). And, of course, our 4 talented student MCs were there to tie everything together.

Many of our speakers were feeling nervous especially backstage right before they took their places on the famous red dot—understandable—not only would they perform in front of an audience, but the event was also being live streamed all around the school and beyond. Luckily, their speaker coach was on site to provide support. They all did brilliantly! We were so impressed by their bravery and how well they articulated topics such as:

  • Changing the World Through Pieces of Plastic
  • Talk to People
  • Questioning the Sayings we Choose to Live by
  • Batman Returns – A Dream to be an Ethical Hacker
  • Give Animals a Break
  • Labels
  • Rethinking Friendship Criteria (The Coolness Factor)

To pull off a school-wide event such as this is a huge feat of organisation and planning, involving many people who devoted many hours of their time.

It was worth it.

Congratulations to the Comms team, the Steering Committee and everyone else who made it such a success!

Watch this space—we will be sharing videos of the talks soon (you might come across a hilarious rap on friendship). You can also find information about our speakers in our TEDx blog.

As Sue Aspinall, Headteacher JSV remarked, it was a “superb opportunity for our students and staff to shine”.

Be you
Be true
Be bold
Because everyone can break the mould!

Excellent words to end #TEDxYouthBSN 2019 from @SueAspinall
