Public speaking.


Year 7s have begun presenting their persuasive speeches in the 2012 Public Speaking Competition. Five finalists from each class will then contest the Marian State School final, with the top two progressing to the Pioneer Valley championship event.

Students are rated on categories including orientation, argument, conclusion, impact, manner and physical & speech techniques. The self-selected topics included animal cruelty, beauty pageants, effects of crime, homelessness, benefits of sport & music and aliens – fact or fiction to name some.
