To say or not to say. When arguments count!

S1, S2 and some students from S3 took part in the 2015 Senior Public Speaking Competition. 
This school project that allows pupils to focus on  speaking and presentation skills and to practice how to communicate ideas effectively.

This year the categories of the competition were: ´Environment-related Monologues¨ (for S1) and ´Historical Debates¨ ( for S2).
Students from S3 played the role of the qualified jury. They assessed participants according to established parameters (rubrics) that evaluated body languagecontent, clarity and preparedness among other aspects. At the end of the competition, S3 students also gave oral feedback to all competitors demonstrating good practice through their improvised speeches.
The event proved to be an interesting learning experience for all students who promised to go for more next year!
