Public Speaking – Seeking Senior School Students

We are currently looking for Senior School students who would be eager to represent the College in Public Speaking. 

If your son is well-spoken, intelligent and knowledgeable on current affairs, then he will benefit from choosing Public Speaking as a co-curricular activity during the Summer season.

Throughout the season, students are taught skills of voice improvement, argumentation, and the importance of body language. Not only are these skills crucial in understanding the power of rhetoric, but they are also readily transferable to analytical writing.

Public Speaking can be joined alongside sport as the competitions take place on Friday nights. Students train two sessions a week and these are flexible in order to accommodate students’ other commitments. Public Speaking can also be a stand-alone Summer co-curricular option.

If your son is interested in participating in Public Speaking, please contact me for more information.
