Well done to Surya (Year 7) for being named winner of the short speech section on the night.

Jake (Year 10) won the impromptu section of the Senior Competition, delivering a charismatic speech after only four minutes to prepare!

Ian (Year 11) won the Senior Competition for his prepared speech in his heat, securing him a place in the final of Wynspeak. His talent, natural storytelling ability and humour impressed the judges and he will now progress further to the Rostrum Voice of the Youth state finals.

Congratulations to all students involved in Wynspeak this year and we wish Ian all the best in the state finals.
