Public Speaking

Public Speaking

The school values highly the skills of public speaking and we want every child to develop confidence when speaking to an audience. The public speaking programme has a distinct focus each term with debating (parliamentary style) taking place in the winter, poetry recital in the spring, and declamation (reading prepared prose) in the summer.

There are competitions in each category and every child from Form 3 upwards participates and performs at some level. Public speaking is also encouraged through class assemblies, reading in Chapel, and participation in school committees.
