Stage 3 Speak Off!

Well done to all the students who presented their speeches last week about a famous Australian. The topic selection, quality information and speaking skills were fantastic.

Today we held the Stage 3 Speak Off, with Sarah, Dan, Max and Rory representing the OC. Once again, they did a fabulous job, impressing the audience and teachers.


At our Principal’s Personal Best assembly this afternoon, Ms Brown announced the winners. Congratulations to Dan who took 1st and Sarah who came 2nd. They will represent our school in the Multicultural Public Speaking competition later this term. Well done!



Congratulations to our OC students who have been selected to represent our school in debating this year.

Our debating coordinator, Miss Beker, had the very tough job of holding try-outs and selecting the teams. There was a huge interest from students and many fine candidates. Well done to everyone who had a go!
