On Friday 27 July, representatives from each year (Years 3-6) presented a speech on a topic of their choice for the Speak Up competition. Some made people laugh while others were left in wonder. We really enjoyed presenting our speeches to the school and enjoyed all of the encouragement from each other. Even though we had a huge amount of encouragement, we were still pretty petrified on the stage with nothing but a few palm cards in our hand.
It was a phenomenal experience for both of us and it helped us gain valuable public speaking experience, skills we look forward to use in the future. Practice makes perfect; this is what you learn during Speak Up.
During Week 3’s assembly, we were all recognised for our achievements and the three finalists who will be competing against other schools in the Round 1 Speak Up Awards were announced. Congratulations Harry, Aadil and Joshua.
