Year 9 Speech Finals

John Quincy Adams once said, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”

On Wednesday, a wonderful group of year 9 students demonstrated their powerful and inspirational public speaking skills at the Year 9 Speech Finals Competition. They bravely delivered their speech in front of the entire Year 9 cohort in the theatre.

The following students were entered as finalists for the competition: Junxuan Mai, Vincent Si, Cadence Powell, Eve Rennie, Travis Tong, Mu-Chien Lee, Tempest Spires, Naesha Cherian, Nish Manjunath and Eva Emslie-Wood.

Congratulations to the following students who placed 1st, 2nd, 3rd in the Year 9 Competition.

1st Prize: Eva Emslie-Wood, ‘Stereotypes need to be addressed.’
2nd Prize: Naesha Cherian, ‘Students should be taught financial literacy.’
3rd Prize: Travis Tong, ‘We shouldn’t have any CAT tests.’

The judges were thoroughly impressed by the calibre of all speakers. We look forward to hearing Eva Emslie-Wood present her speech in front of the whole school at assembly later this term.
