Last night, I attended the Lions Youth of the Year speaking competition hosted by the Rye Lions Club. This is a wonderful event run by Lions Clubs across Australia. It gives students the opportunity to demonstrate their public speaking skills in two categories. First they have to respond to two impromptu questions and then later deliver a five minute prepared speech on a topic of their own choice. The school was represented by Tasha Lincoln, Chloe Miller, Kristelle Kelsall and Zak Stolz.
Tasha Lincoln won both the ‘Public Speaking Award’ and overall on the night and will progress to the next round. I would like to congratulate all the students involved in this event.
