Grade 7 Orators Competition
The Grade 7 Orator's Competition was held in the Martin Emmerick Hall on Thursday 1 June. The audience was treated to excellent well-prepared orals and entertaining unprepared ones. Thank you to the three adjudicators: Mrs Pons, Mrs Scheepers and Mrs Warneke, who had the difficult task of choosing the overall winner. The best orator was Caitlyn Burton who spoke about Emotional Intelligence and its benefits. Her unprepared topic was " How lying can be useful" which was most entertaining. Jordan Harris spoke about "The Ten Weirdest Jobs in the World" and was highly commended for her presentation. The other Grade 7 contestants were: Lauren Thatcher (Accidental Inventions), David Forbes (The Butterfly Effect), Roxane Welthagen (Surviving the Zombie Apocalypse), Taryn Schwikkard (Haunted Places), Kayla Schmelzer (Amazing Survival Stories) and Keanu Greyvenstein (Coincidences). Well done to these children on their high standard of orals! We are very proud of them.
