The Annual All Boys John Symond Public Speaking Competition was held in the school hall on Thursday 16 March, 2017. Twenty-five students from Years 7-11 each delivered a 4 minute speech on topics such as A Path worth Taking, The Best things in Life are Free, Technology has gone too far, The Silent Killer, The Point of No Return and Put Another Log in the Fire.
The students competed in 2 sections – a junior section and a senior section. The competition was lively with some exemplary performances throughout the day. The chair was Tobias Buckley and the timekeeper was Rukshil Darshan. Ms Sahay was the adjudicator.
The winners in the junior section were Timothy Choong (first), Samuel Livingston (runner up), Alve Rayan (second runner up). And Elias Mansfield was recognized with the highly commended award. In the Senior Section, the winner was Tobias Buckley, whilst the first runner up was Charles Mclean and Fawad Faheem was the second runner up. Niranjan Reghunath was highly commended for his effort.
I am pleased to inform you that all students in Years 7, 8 and 9 are now enrolled in a literacy on-line program. It is a wonderful year-long course which students will be encouraged to work through predominantly as homework. For students in Years 8 and 9 this involvement in a continuation of last year’s program.
The program, WordFlyers (www.wordflyers.com.au), is a product developed by Blake Education, the same company that has developed the popular Reading Eggs in primary school. Each student will be working at his own pace and each student will start at his own ability level.
