Students speak with confidence

Last month, student representatives from the All Saints Cluster region participated in the Regional Public Speaking Competition at Holy Spirit Infants School, Abermain.

Exploring topics ranging from toys and intelligence to sleep, kindness, holidays and peace, students spoke with confidence and enthusiasm.

Students as young as 5 years old wrote their speeches and presented with confidence, humour and charm. Representatives from Lochinvar, Branxton, Maitland, Rutherford, East Maitland, Tarro, Kurri Kurri, Chisholm, Cessnock and Abermain took part in prepared and impromptu speeches.
