Public Speaking – Round 1

On Friday 3 March, the Bethany College public speaking team, competed in the CSDA Round 1 public speaking competition, held at Holy Cross College, Ryde. As participants, we had to prepare a four minute speech from the following 6 categories. These include ‘How are things in Glocca Morra’, ‘Emotional Turmoil’ ‘Socks’, ‘Strong and Constant’,  and ‘Mud, mud, glorious mud’.  

The Bethany speakers from years 7 to 12  competed against other students from other schools in  our region. This competition is a great way to build confidence and skills for public speaking in front of an unknown audience.We wish the best of luck to those speakers who made it through to the next round of the competition, the ‘zone final’, on 10th of March.
