After eight weeks of after-school sessions with teachers and Toastmasters from the Zoomarine and Toastmasters Roma clubs to perfect their public speaking skills, fifteen brave students pitted their wits against one another in the school's Youth Leadership Program Final on 15th November! Students took part in a prepared speech contest, in an impromptu contest and in an evaluation contest.
Winner of the evaluation contest: Sofia
Winner of the table topics contest: Annie
Winner of the prepared speech contest: Annie
A special mention to Dean for taking on the role of presenter for the evening and to Greta for her fabulous organisation skills during the project.
Comments from the judges and parents:
"They are getting better and better every year; the standard was excellent."
"I was so impressed with all of the candidates. Humility, humour, courage and some real thought provokers. As you probably my know, part of my job has always been to give speeches and I truly believe you have some real stars."
