Junior Public Speaking Awards
Congratulations to Year 9 student Jacob Wilson and Year 7 students Zoe Kierce, Ella Miles and Zoe Newman for their participation in the 2019 Ballarat Legacy Junior Public Speaking Award. They represented Damascus College well with their topics of Yemen war over aid, assistant teaching, is life too preserved at all costs? and scouting. They each had 5 minutes to deliver their prepared speeches. After the break they were given the topic of 'Belonging' for their impromptu speech. Here they had 5 minutes to prepare and 2 minutes only to deliver. They did a great job under pressure. Congratulations to Loreto College who have two girls heading off to the preliminary final in September.
