Moama Anglican Grammar School had five students compete at the Lions Youth of the Year Competition at Moama Public School at the weekend.
Hannah Weier (Year 6), Georgina Gough (Year 5), Cleo Oberin (Year 5), Ella Bowler (Year 3) and Patrick Kennedy (Year 3) spoke exceptionally well competing in their respective age divisions against students from Moama Public.
They spoke on world topics while ‘posing’ as experts in their field, which allowed for lot of creativity.
The students in Year 5 and 6 not only presented their prepared speeches but were also required to be involved in an impromptu speech.
They were given 5 minutes to prepare for this on a question related to sports and exercise. With only a short amount of time to prepare all students did themselves proud.
The winners were announced at the end of the competition, unfortunately Ella and Patrick missed out on a place but should be exceptionally proud of their performances.
Hannah and Cleo were also unfortunate to miss out despite speaking with lots of confidence and clarity, it was Georgina Gough who come through with the win.
Georgina will be representing Moama Anglican Grammar School this coming Sunday
in the next stage. Good Luck, Georgina!
