Public Speaking

In Week 3, Year 6 held a Public Speaking Competition to select 2 speakers to represent our school at the Central Coast Cluster Final of the Br Tony Whelan Public Speaking Competition. Lachlan H and Evie P were selected to represent Holy Cross, with Gabrielle H being awarded 3rd place and runner up.

Today, Lachlan and Evie went to St Patrick’s at East Gosford to compete in the Cluster Final. The standard was remarkably high, with adjudicators and teachers from all schools commenting on the outstanding quality of all the speakers. Not only did they have to present a prepared 3 minute speech, but then they were also given 10 minutes to prepare a 1 minute speech on a brand new topic…this is extremely challenging but every speaker did an excellent job.

Not only did our 2 students represent our school beautifully, but to top it off Lachlan was awarded 1st Place and will now represent the Central Coast at the Diocesan Final in Sydney in a few weeks. Good luck to Lachlan and congratulations!!
