There was a distinct feeling of excitement and anticipation in the air on Tuesday 17 August when 45 Year 7 students presented their speeches at the annual Year 7 Somerset Public Speaking Competition. The audience listened intently to a diverse range of well- prepared speeches.
As always, the standard was exceptional and it was difficult to pick a winner in each group of approximately 9 students. At the end of the evening First Place students received a Book Voucher and everyone went home with a Participation Certificate.
These winners and a number of other students will take part in the A.B. Paterson Public Speaking Competition held next term.
I would like to thank the Year 10, 11 and 12 adjudicators and the Year 7 and 8 announcers and timekeepers for their assistance. This event could not take place without these wonderful volunteers.
