Year 5 Speech Competition

Selecting a topic for a speech and then researching, writing and presenting a speech is a demanding task.

The Year 5 teachers are especially proud this week because all the students in Year 5 have done exactly that! Given the theme: ‘If you could change one thing in the world, what would it be?’, the students covered an amazing range of topics from gender inequality to animal rights, and reducing noise pollution to stopping smoking.

The final itself was highly entertaining. Expertly hosted by Jerry (5H) and Molly (5C), our 8 finalists passionately presented their speeches to an audience of over 500 students, teachers, parents and of course, the judging panel. Video extracts of runners up from each class reminded us all how tough it was for the finalists to have been selected in the first place. The judges had a daunting task with such an incredible standard of speeches and all the finalists received commendations and medals. While the judges were deciding on the winners, the audience enjoyed wonderful musical performances from Lucy (5H), Han (5C), JuWon (5C), Hrituraj (5S) and Emily (5V).  Congratulations to all the finalists, and especially to the runners up: Erica (5C) and Anabelle (5N); and to our winner, Laura (5H).  The other finalists were Kang Heum (5B), Isabella (5I), Bill (5S), Hannah (5V) and Arya (5M). We look forward to seeing our talented students participate in many speech and debate competitions in the future.

Thank you to Mr Mike Sullivan and Ms Louise Glisson, our event organisers.
