Speech Competition – Venture Southland

Over the last month, all Year 7 and 8 students have prepared a speech to share with their classes as part of the Venture Southland Creative Speech Competition. Two students from each class went through to the syndicate finals where the top ten across both year levels were judged for each year level final. Congratulations to all students who participated in the final. A big thank you to our judges, especially Mrs Alsweiler, who had the tough job of deciding all syndicate and year level finals.
