Amesbury Speech Competition

By Andy Little | Posted: Thursday August 22, 2019

This is a great opportunity for all students to create and present a short speech on something that has meaning to them.

Tēnā koutou, whānau.

Amesbury School will be hosting a speech competition for our tamariki this term. It is open to students of all ages, and they may choose to talk about any topic that is of interest to them.

Speech time limits: 

  • Year 0 - between 30 seconds to 1 minute
  • Year 1-2 - between 1 minute and 2 minutes
  • Year 3-4 - between 1min30 sec and 2min30sec
  • Year 5-6 - between 2min30 sec and 3min30 sec

Students must sign up for the competition by Tuesday 27 August. 

Click here for the registration form. Heats will take place in Week 8 (9-13 September). These will be judged by hub teachers, and each age group (Y0, Y1-2, Y3-4, and Y5-6) will send their three top students to the final, which will take place in our school hall from 11.30am-12.30pm on Thursday 19 September.

At the final, speeches will be judged by guest judges who will be looking for speeches with excellent structure, strong voices, and audience interaction. We hope to see some of you there.

Ngā mihi nui,
