It has been a good year for public speaking. The girls have participated in 2 Bloemfontein competitions (hosted by Eunice) against other schools and did very well. In the first competition in March Guisi Cirelli and Sylke van Vreede tied for first place, winning the Junior competition. They also took part in two Derby’s and also did well. Sylke van Vreede and Zandile Ngombane did Eunice public speaking proud by participating in the Youth Summit in August. Sylke won her age group and Zandile came second. As a result both girls go through to the Free State provincial finals at a date to be confirmed.

Closing (Goal / dream for 2017)
I would like to organize a workshop in the first term of 2017 for public speakers which will look at exactly what is expected of them and how to public speak. Also to show them how to approach and do an impromptu speech.
