Local learners build confidence through public speaking
One of the best platforms on which learners build their confidence, find their voice, and push themselves just beyond their comfort zone is public speaking.
Curro Midrand Independent School is committed to teaching these skills to its learners through its annual public speaking event held on June 1.
According to the school, public speaking is not a talent that everyone is naturally good at. “It is quite a nerve-wracking and daunting task for many of us. However, we do indeed have a few naturally talented lecturers who have certainly impressed us with their eloquent and inspiring speeches,” the school said.
During the event, the speakers all received certificates and medals for their efforts. The top speaker in each class walked away with a gold certificate, medal and trophy.
The judges of the day were extremely impressed with the presentation skills and content of the speakers. Gold certificates were awarded to Kuyuran Marimuthu (1st year), Ayabonga Mbanjwa (2nd year), Yajna Maharaj (3rd year), Saranya Marimuthu (4th year), Elin Moodley (5th year), Dhiara Naidoo (6th year) and Mihle Fredricks (7th grade).
