Congratulations to the students of Port Macquarie, Beechwood, North Haven, Telegraph Point, Tacking Point, Aldavilla and Hastings Public Schools who participated in the district finals of the Multicultural Public Speaking competition at Hastings Public School.
Each student presented a prepared speech on a topic of their choice given by the Department of Education’s Arts Unit.
These speeches had to have a multicultural theme and explore relevant issues.
Overall, the adjudicator commented on the high quality of speeches. In addition, students also prepared an impromptu speech.
Stage 2 students had five minutes to prepare a speech on trees while Stage 3 prepared and presented a speech on sport.
The Stage 2 competition was won by Gabby Turner from Tacking Point and Kaeleb Morris from Hastings won the Stage 3 division.
Special congratulations to Madison Hopley (3B) who was awarded a Highly Commended and bigger congratulations to Kaeleb (5/6R) who will now represent Hastings at the Regional Finals next term.
