Could you have 1 minute to prepare for a topic and then speak on this topic for another minute? Very challenging! The Year 8’s had this challenge this week. The topic was the Best Letter in the Alphabet. Congratulations to Nisha Kantanon who was placed second and Thomas Malone who placed first.
After many weeks of thinking, drafting, refining, practicing our delivery it was time to deliver the persuasive speech. The Year 6 and 7’s had their judging on Wednesday with Akshay Aneesh placing first for the Year 6’s and Molly Coutts placing first for the Year 7’s.
On Thursday evening, every Year 8 delivered a wonderful and successful speech to a large but wonderfully supportive crowd. The topic was the Three Most Important Things in Life. The topics were varied with many different things being identified such as shoes, our mums, family, Pokemon, toilet paper, teachers, cats and Harry Potter being only a few.
It was a very hard task for Dr Emerson to judge with such a high calibre of speeches.
