On Monday the 23rd of April, St John’s hosted the South Burnett heat of the Junior Rostrum speaking competition. In total, 21 students from Kingaroy State High School, Nanango State High School, St Mary’s Catholic College and St John’s participated.
Congratulations to winners, Lily Rees and Ben Springhall, and runners-up, Abbie Moseling and Shannon Hartley (from Kingaroy State High), who now move through to the South West Queensland Regional Final in Toowoomba on the 12th of May.
Thank you to TOASTMASTERS Kingaroy for providing adjudicators for last night’s competition. Without this wonderful support from TOASTMASTERS, we would not be able to host such a competition. It is fantastic for the students to obtain feedback on ways to hone their speaking craft from such experienced and passionate speakers.
