IMG_1761.JPGThe coveted Elsie Moore Memorial Speech Cups were what all finalist contestants had their eye on at the recently held prepared Speech Finals for the Middle and Senior School.

The standard of the speeches was exceptionally high and there was a wide variety of original topics.

The winner of the Senior School Speech Competition was Edward Wilkes who spoke on ‘Marmite’, and the runner-up was Hunter Deavoll who entertained with his experiences of ‘Character Building Holidays’.

The winner for the Middle School Speech Competition was Jack Sandelin who shared his thoughts on ‘The Kiwis Love for Sport’, and the runner-up was Fraser McOmish who spoke on ‘Being a Kid Today’.

Winners Edward Wilkes and Jack Sandelin will now represent the Boys’ School at the Remuera Zone competition and the Remuera Lions Club competition in Term 3.

Mr Chris Hodder held the role as adjudicator for the Finals, who is Head of the Middle School English Department at the College and also Heads the College Debating team. Samuel Barry and Alexander Johnston both did sterling jobs as Masters of Ceremony running the competition, and Mark Hutchinson also had a huge part in ensuring that the competition ran smoothly.

Well done to all the contestants for making it into the final, congratulations to the winners and thank you Mr Chris Hodder for judging the Speech Finals and your professional input and encouragement.

Thank you also to Samuel Barry and Alexander Johnston for their contribution.

With thanks to Assistant Principal, Louise Miles
