Congratulations to the ‘Youth Speaks’ team

Posted on February 15, 2019


Congratulations to Claudia Eveling (Chairperson), Sofija Gelev (Vote of Thanks) and Hannah Clark (Main Speaker) who represented the Junior School at the Rotary Youth Speaks competition on Tuesday 29 January 2019. This event is crucial in encouraging public speaking for students in Year 6 and we were very proud to be the host venue this year.

The girls presented the arguments for and against “Should people be immortal” against stiff opposition from seven other schools. The team spoke confidently and presented their argument convincingly in front of a full crowd in the Performing Arts Centre, provoking much thought amongst the audience. Whilst not qualifying for the last round, the team were well in the mix amongst lots of quality speeches including the winning teams’ ‘Does Santa exist’ and ‘Why gaol?’. Well done to everyone who took part!
