CSDA Public Speaking Competition

The first round of the CSDA Public Speaking Competition was held on Friday 8th of March at OLMC, Burraneer. An array of interesting topics were selected and prepared, and all students spoke most passionately about their chosen argument. We had 12 girls selected to represent Bethany at this knockout championship and I would like to thank the girls for the confident and mature manner in which they conducted themselves. All girls represented Bethany with pride and their behaviour reflected the fundamental values of the school.        

Congratulations to Tea Leone (Year 7) and Jade Lozanovski (Year 10) for being selected to progress to the Zone Finals held on March 15th.  

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Debating/Public Speaking coordinator, Mr Martin, as well as all the teachers and students involved this year for your endless hard work and dedication to public speaking. Good luck Tea and Jade for this Friday’s competition!
