This evening, 10 of our Year 4 students furthered their public speaking skills by participating in the A B Paterson College Public Speaking Competition. The competition is used as an extension to our school's mySpeak program and is open to any student who is willing to give it a go. Year 4 is the introductory year level, where students aren't given places, but are provided with valuable experience and feedback on their public speaking.
Our students represented our school exceptionally well and demonstrated they were more than ready for the competition. Although many expressed they were nervous speaking before an audience they didn't know, these nerves were not apparent as they stood out the front and delivered their speeches with confidence and skill. Parents and teachers who attended the event were super impressed with just how well our Year 4's spoke.
Year 5 and 6 students are set to participate in this competition next term and we're looking forward to seeing their growth as well.
