This term all Room 3 students have been working hard to write and present fantastic speeches. Everyone successfully presented their speech, with a wide range of topics being selected. Topics ranged from Pukeko's to How To Get Fit, Rugby, Cricket, Money, Space and even the Tarantula Hawk.
It was hard to select only 4 speeches to go forward to the School Speech finals, but in the end Jacob, Charlie, Rico and Charli were selected to represent Room 3. All four worked extremely hard to perfect their speeches and did an amazing job of presenting to a large audience. It was great to see their confidence presenting in front of others, and to see their improvement from when they presented to the class till the speech finals. It really showed how much they have taken on board advice and worked hard to perfect their speech and performances. A huge congratulations to all four of them for having the courage to represent themselves and our classroom so well.
We had great success with Rico winning the Year 6 group and Jacob placing third in the Year 7 division. A fantastic achievement for both boys. Unfortunately Rico is away next week and is unable to present his winning speech at the Rotary Speech Finals, instead the two runners up (Jessica and Anna from Room 4) will represent Stanley Avenue School as the Year 6 speakers and we wish them all the very best.
Here is Rico's winning speech. Note that this is his classroom presentation, as we did not record speeches at the School Finals.
