“Legacy Junior Public Speaking” competition

On 29 July, we competed in the Southern Sydney ‘Junior Legacy Public Speaking’ competition. This involved a prepared speech and an impromptu speech where we had 5 minutes to write a 2 minute speech. In our prepared speeches, Sophia talked about “Chequebook Journalism” and Nektaria talked about how “Laughter is the best medicine”. We both delivered our very best and had the encouragement and support from both our peers and teachers. We felt very honoured to represent Bethany College at this event. It was a very challenging competition as we were versing others up to the age of 14. Each speaker did extremely well. We both did an amazing job, with Sophia making it to the Sydney – wide competition next Tuesday. We wish her the best of luck!!
