All six of our students put their best voices forward on Saturday 10 October in the northern final of Rostrum’s Voice of Youth public speaking competition.

Year 11 students Jack Oates Pryor and Dean Power both won first place in the Senior Division and Alex Munro, also Year 11, won the encouragement award.  Gabriel Walton Clear  (Year 11) and Will Scott (Year 11) were also strong contenders on the day. Together these five boys were outstanding in their kind support and encouragement of each other as they presented their eight-minute prepared speeches and three-minute impromptus.

In the Junior Division, Charlotte Ball (Year 8) really stepped up to the mark and wowed the audience with her smoothly delivered speeches.  She took home the encouragement award.

Many thanks to the parents who attended.  Their strong support collectively added to the success of the day.  We now look forward to attending Rostrum’s State Final on Saturday 24 October.
