Once again this year, the Rotary Club of Ryde is hosting the 7th Annual Junior School Public Speaking Competition, the finals to be held on Tuesday, 27th March, 2012, 6pm for 6:30 at our Rotary meeting held at the Next Generation Club (next to the Ryde Aquatic Centre) Victoria Road, Ryde. In the first instance, we are calling for your expression of interest and would appreciate you registering your intent by return email to Allen.Horrell@Bluescopesteel.com
This competition gives Junior School students from the Ryde district the opportunity to demonstrate their speaking skills in a public forum and prizes are awarded to the winning competitors.
Each registered school may nominate two of their students from Grades 5 or 6 to enter the preliminary competition which will be held 6pm, Wednesday 14th March, at the Eastwood Heights Primary School Hall. Three finalists will be chosen from the competing schools, progressing to the final. Parents, friends and school staff are invited to attend.
Below are the five topics from which your nominated public speaking competitor may choose. The speech should be 3 minutes in length:
- Our Country
- Reach for the Stars
- Living in my suburb
- Turn off that TV!
- Dear Madam Prime Minister...
The three finalists will be asked to repeat the speech given at the preliminaries to our Rotary meeting. They will then be allotted ten minutes to prepare and present a one minute impromptu speech to conclude the judging.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you would like any further information.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Public Speaking Convener,
The Rotary Club of Ryde, Inc.
