There was a distinct feeling of excitement and anticipation in the air on Tuesday 15 September as 42 Year 7 students entered classrooms to present their speeches at the annual Year Somerset Public Speaking Competition.

The audience listened intently to a diverse range of well-prepared speeches which were adjudicated by our Year 11 and 12 students.

As always, the standard was exceptional and it was really difficult to pick a winner in each group of ten students. However, at the end of the evening those who were awarded First Place received $15. As well, everyone went home with a Participation Certificate, and a sense of achievement.

The following students gained First Place in their group:

  • Helena Hagen
  • Lily MacGregor
  • Andre Vasquez
  • Harrison Hall
  • Hannah Kennedy

These winners, and a number of other students, will be invited to take part in the AB Paterson Public Speaking Competition.
