On Friday the 8th a teacher from Northcote High School came to talk to the grade 5/6s about public speaking. He told us about a public speaking competition where a representative from each school will write a speech on a subject chosen by Northcote High School and compete against representatives from other schools..
On Monday the 11th, all the grade 5/6s started a piece of writing about how art is essential to life. Each class will have their own mini competition. Each student must write a 3 minute speech about why they think art is essential to life. One boy and one girl will be chosen from each class to compete against other classes and all the teachers and students in grade 5/6s will vote on who will go to Northcote High School to compete.
