The Primary School Public Speaking Finals were held in the Iona Theatre on Thursday 4 April. All students from Years 2 to 6 wrote a speech on a topic of their choice. Class teachers selected the top three speeches from their class to participate in the finals.
Topics varied from landmarks and locations to animals and family members. The speeches were very informative—congratulations to all our talented participants! We sincerely thank our adjudicators Miss Nicola Gallace, Mrs Libby Watts and Mrs Jennifer Crofts.
