Late last month, Samuel Livingston and Timothy Choong attended the local final of the New South Wales Legacy Junior Public Speaking Award. These boys travelled to Sefton High School and competed against 14 students from other schools within the local area. The boys were required to present two speeches, one prepared and one impromptu, in front of an audience for a place in the regional final.

Samuel ultimately found success, earning a place in the finals at Lewisham, which he attended on the 17th of August. This time, Samuel spoke alongside 10 of the region’s most formidable finalists, but was unfortunately bested as another student earned their place in the state finals.

Making it to this level of public speaking is a significant achievement, and both Samuel and Timothy deserve congratulations for their efforts in representing Homebush Boys High School.

There are no more public speaking competitions this year, but there is always next year. If you are interested in entering next year, see Ms Sahay in the English Staffroom for more information.
