I had the very difficult task of joining the panel of judges for the MP2 Speech Competition on Wednesday. The annual speech competition started at the TX Campus in my first year at TX, 6 years ago. The competition was for children in Year 5 and 6 and raised the importance of competence in the skills required to speak in front of an audience.
Three years ago, the competition was introduced to MP2. On Wednesday, the 10 finalists demonstrated what amazing levels Year 3 and 4 are now achieving. The confidence with which they presented; the clarity of their speech; the way they engaged with the audience and the research done to produce such interesting, coherent presentations was creditworthy. Well done to all the finalists and particularly to Iris, Naomi and Sooa who took the first, second and third.
Today, MP3 children performed their production, ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ for the TX campus. This was their first dress rehearsal however it was almost flawless! I would strongly recommend that you come and watch the performance on Tuesday 14th April at 6pm. You will be truly entertained by lively singing and dancing as well as having a laugh at the quirkiness of Willy Wonka.
I would like to remind you that Term 2 will finish next Friday at the earlier time of 11:30am. Term 3 will start on Monday May 4th.
From Monday May 4th, all parents and visitors to the TX campus will need to show their security cards. If you forget your card then you will be asked to exchange a personal ID card e.g. a driving licence for a Visitor Pass at the gate.
