On Friday, 5 August Year 7 students Indira Brown and Harper Gracie competed in the Legacy Junior Public Speaking competition at Riverside Girls High School. Indira delivered a powerful prepared speech on Homelessnes and Harper spoke about the complex issue of Globalisation. Both girls had to give a two minute impromptu speech on the topic “A Useful Mistake”. The girls spoke extremely well and whilst they did not progress to the next round it was an excellent experience for them and exposed them to some very polished and accomplished public speakers.
The Friday afternoon debating workshops begin today. Girls are still welcome to sign for them. If you have any question please email Mrs Johnstone at firstname.lastname@example.org
On Tuesday, 23 August Loreto Kirribilli will host one of the Quarter Final rounds for the Archdale debating competition. Our Year 7 A team of Sophie Bateman, Bridget Currie, Harper Gracie, Sarah Munstermann and Alessia Rupolo will be debating against Kambala.
