As a key part of our Talking and Listening program, all Connells Point Public School students take part in our school-wide public speaking competition.
Each student in the school presents a prepared speech to his or her class. From these presentations, representatives are chosen to progress to our school stage semi-final competitions. Finalists are then selected to represent stages which compete in the school-wide competition. To assist in the differentiation of student performances, finalists will be required to present an impromptu speech on a topic provided at the final.
Stage winners of finals will proceed to represent the school at the Georges River Network Public Speaking Competition and, should success be achieved at that level, progress to represent at the next level.
We look forward to all students taking this opportunity to further develop their confidence in speaking before an audience.
Below are some links that may assist in preparing a speech.
