CWA Public Speaking
On Tuesday, 21 May 2013 our public speakers from Years 3 through to Year 12 travelled to Kinross to represent the School in the annual Country Women’s Association Public Speaking Competition. This year saw a greater number of entries than previous years with the region’s best student public speakers delivering speeches on a range of topics. As in previous years our entrants both presented and spoke well and gained recognition for the school in each age division. Thank you to those students who represented our School, spoke well and gained recognition in each age division.
From Years 11 and 12 we had Jonty Boshier, Meredith Spence, Robbie Hayward (Second Place) and Calhan Behrendt (Highly Commended). From Years 9 and 10 we had Zachery Telfser (Highly Commended), Stephanie Ferguson (Highly Commended) and Luke Im. From Years 7 and 8 we were represented by Aiden Telfser (First Place), Emelia Inwood (Highly Commended) and Paris Holmes.
Our Junior School students were also involved with Andrew Knox from Year 6 gaining Second Place. Other representatives of the Junior School were: Cooper Johnson from Year 3, Jack Kiernan from Year 4 and Evan Smith from Year 5. All students from Kindergarten to Year 12 are involved in Public Speaking every year beginning at class level and moving up through various levels until they represent the school. The success of our Public Speaking and Debating is clearly a result of this programme.
Our students also competed in HICES Debating this week with our highly accomplished Year 6 team of Andrew Knox, Gabrielle Boshier, Gabrielle Morrison and Elizabeth Woodhouse coming away with yet another resounding win, this time against All Saints College.
