Amesbury Speech Competition

Natalie Douglas —

This is a great opportunity for all students to create and present a short speech on something that has meaning to them.

Tēnā koutou, whānau,

Amesbury School will be hosting a speech competition for our tamariki this term. It is open to students of all ages, and they may choose to talk about any topic that is of interest to them.

Heats will take place in Week 5 Term 4 (9th - 13th November). These will be judged by hub teachers, and each age group (Y0-Y1, Y2, Y3-4, and Y5-6) will send their three top students to the final, which will take place in our school hall from 1:30pm on Thursday 19th November 2020. At the final, speeches will be judged by guest judges who will be looking for speeches with excellent structure, strong voices, and audience interaction. We hope to see some of you there.

Ngā mihi nui,
