There was a distinct feeling of excitement and anticipation in the air Thursday 24 August as 48 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 which were adjudicated by our Year 9, 10 and 11 students.
As always, the standard was exceptional and it was really difficult to pick a winner in each group of 8 to 10 students. However, at the end of the evening those who were awarded First Place received a Book Voucher. As well, everyone went home with a Participation Certificate and a sense of achievement.
The following students gained First Place in their group:
These winners and a number of other students will be invited to take part in the A.B. Paterson Public Speaking Competition held next term.
I would like to thank the students who adjudicated or who were announcers or timekeepers. This event could not take place with these wonderful volunteers.
