The Grade 7 Orators’ Competition was held in the Martin Emmerick Hall on Thursday 24 May. The audience was treated to excellent, well-researched and thought-provoking orals. Thank you to the three adjudicators: Mrs Pons, Mrs Moosa and Mrs Yarborough, who had the daunting task of choosing a winner amongst such talent.
The winner of the day was Hope Gabriel who spoke passionately about “Foreigners in South Africa”. Her unprepared oral was an amusing account of “My First Attempt at Surfing”. Talissa Muniz did her prepared oral on “Blurred Lines in the Rainbow” and was highly commended for her riveting presentation.
The other Grade 7 orators were: Petra Coltman (Five Things You Didn’t Know About Yourself), Xander Bush (The Fourth Industrial Revolution), Bergen Dekker (World Records), Joshua Jonker (Technology Makes Us Dumber), Jordan le Roux (Mysteries of the World) and Sarah-Jade Henry (Emotional Versus Physical Pain). We are incredibly proud of our top-eight Grade 7 orators on a job well done!
