The competition was fierce, the quality outstanding and each and every adult in the Secondary Auditorium was as proud as could be. Each child that spoke could have been a winner and our judges, Mr Neil Gorton, Mr Gavin Donnelly and Ms Shaheena Pall, one of the competition founders, had extremely difficult decisions to make while the room was treated to some beautiful, and festive music from four talented musicians, Caellum McIntosh, Chanhyeok Kim, Joon Heuk Lee and April Kim.
The judges decided that in the Year 5 winning speech was ‘Why children should have access to clean water’ by Monique Geronimo. The second and third runners up were Sophie Nguyen and Anh Huy Ho.
In Year 6, the motion to be debated was ‘Should children have the right to choose their own timetable?’
The judges decided that the team opposing the motion were the winners, and Karzan Ong, Timothy Suh, Emma Diep and Casi Curran were able to celebrate with their well-earned trophies.
Congratulations to all of the children that took part and thank you to all of those who attended and were involved.
Mr Gary Fyles, Year 5 Teacher/Science Leader
