On Tuesday the 25th of October, 4 students from Crossmaglen attended the Bongil Bongil public speaking competition at Toormina Public School.
Prior to this event students individually had to prepare a 2-3 minute speech on a topic of their choice.
Dala from Stage 1 presented a speech on the Kakapo bird from New Zealand. Olivia from Stage 2 informed the audience about the variety of Turtle species and their individual features. Lucinda from Stage 3 discussed a controversial issue on Multiculturalism and Madison also from Stage 3 brought the audience to a stand still by sharing her experience of feeling lonely and using appropriate methods of expressing emotions.
Both Lucinda and Madison also had 6 minutes to prepare an impromptu speech on the topic ‘is school the only place you learn?’
All students should be proud of their efforts as you all did a fantastic job! Congratulations also to Lucinda for achieving the Stage 2, Highly Commended.
