Year 7 and 8 Speech Competition


Over the last month, all Year 7 and 8 students have prepared a speech to share with their class as part of the Venture Southland Creative Speech Competition. Two students from each class went through to the syndicate semi-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. Thank you to our judges who had the tough job of deciding all syndicate and year level finals.
