At the College Open Day on 29 May, the Indonesian Department held its annual speech contest. There were 23 participants from Years 7 to 12. Each of the year levels had a different speech to present. The texts were based on different cultural and tourist places in Indonesia. The students were marked on their pronunciation of the words, their fluency, their intonation pattern and eye contact with the audience. These were marked out of 40. With the excitement and noise of Open Day activities the students had to present under a quite noisy and excited atmosphere. The winning student in each year level will be presented with a $50 gift card and will also have a trophy presented at the Celebration of Excellence.

Congratulations to the following students as winners of their year level:

  • Year 12: Tobias Batson
  • Year 10: Harry McLaughlin
  • Year 9: Jackson Stonebridge
  • Year 8: Oscar Owens
  • Year 7: Oliver Gower
