On Friday, 19th May, Charlie Mclean and Tobias Buckley, two outstanding speakers in the recent John Symonds Public Speaking Competition, competed against several other schools in our Zone for the coveted local final of the Plain English Speaking Competition at Strathfield Girls High School. 

Students were required to deliver an 8 minute prepared speech as well as a 3 minute impromptu speech with 3 minutes of preparation time.

Both the boys presented extremely motivating speeches but they were pitted against students who were in Year 11 and 12, some of whom were studying Extension English.  Both our boys are in year 10. Taking part in this competition has no doubt given them the necessary experience to progress to the next level next year.  Great effort lads!

The Junior Legacy competition will be held at Sefton High on Wednesday, 26th July. The boys are undergoing vigorous training for this during lunch times. We wish them every success.
