Private Speech Concert

September 03, 2019 at 12:57 PM

More than 20 Girls’ School students who take private speech lessons took the opportunity to showcase their talents at last week’s Private Speech Concert. The annual concert provides an opportunity for the students to bring their friends and family together for a night’s entertainment and watch some of the students’ Trinity College and Speech N.Z examination pieces.

With great poise and energy, the girls delivered a delightful array of dramatic characterisation performances, poetry and book readings.

Showcasing both humorous and thought-provoking pieces, the audience left feeling they’d been thoroughly entertained by the talented group of students. Well done girls!

Private Speech Examinations: Around 50 students sat the Speech N.Z exams last month and out of that 50, 32 students received Honours or Honours Plus (the highest marks) and the rest received Merit Plus (the mark under). The students are still waiting on their Trinity College results.
