Many words are spoken at NSW Parliament House but last term it was the young giving their words of wisdom.

Twenty four students from across the state took to the stage for the NSW semi final of the Legacy Junior Public Speaking Award.

Ibrahim Taha, of Homebush Boys High School, spoke eloquently on his chosen topic “Books are obsolete” for the prepared five minute speech and followed up with a convincing argument for the two minute impromptu speech.

Making it to the semi finals was a great achievement for Ibrahim as more than 425 students competed across NSW.

The Legacy Junior Public Speaking Award encourages the speaker’s use of language to convey a message or a point of view to the audience. They are judged on choice of words, intonation, articulation, pace and pausing.

The competition is organised by the Arts Unit, within the NSW Department of Education and Communities.

Eight students go through to the state final on October 17 at the Art Gallery of NSW.

Pink Ribbon Day RibbonABOUT 15,000 women across the nation are diagnosed with breast cancer each year.  One in eight women will experience breast cancer.  There isn’t anyone who won’t be touched by cancer in their lives at some point.  

Homebush Boys High School is a school that continues on with its strong donation traditions.  This month, we’re harnessing the power to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.  Pink Ribbon Day is an annual event run by the Cancer Council which aims to raise funds and awareness about breast and gynaecological cancers.

Homebush Boys High School encourages all to ‘think pink’ and thanks those who will be involved in Pink Ribbon Day initiatives.
