I had the great pleasure of attending the Croydon/Mooroolbark District Lions Club Public Speaking Competition on Sunday, 19 February. Our four College Captains entered this prestigious competition and I am proud to announce that Mia Brice won the Best Public Speaker for this event. I would like to take the opportunity to congratulate all four students, Mia, Ethan, Layla and Brodie for their extensive preparation which began last year. All four students had to speak for two minutes on two unfamiliar prompts in the ‘Impromptu’ section, present a five minute prepared speech, as well as taking part in a 45 minute interview, on top of their Year 12 studies. Their performances on the day were outstanding. Thanks must also go to the Croydon/Mooroolbark District Lions Club for providing this invaluable experience.
