This year we re-started the year 9 and 10 speech competition. Input was school-wide with all departments feeding in topics that students either had prior knowledge of or would be learning about in Term 2. We also fed into the topics from our external Maori and Pasifika speech competitions. As a result, the competition was robust and we had a fantastic cross section of orators and topics. No one envied the adjudication task of our Year 9 judge Mrs Sue de Lautour or Year 10 judge Mrs Lisa Sushames. Well done to all of our competitors - it would appear from your persuasive speeches that we have some budding orators, lawyers, environmentalists and scientists.
