Last Thursday, Julie Lan (Year 12) and Jaskeerat Kaur (Year 11) represented Killester College in a regional final of the VCAA Plain English Speaking Award at St Bede’s College, Mentone. The Plain English Speaking Award requires students to speak clearly and convincingly, in Plain English, on an issue that shows an awareness of a world beyond their immediate environment. Competitors presented a six minute prepared speech and a three minute impromptu speech. Julie and Jaskeerat spoke with flair and confidence and were impressive ambassadors for our College. The girls should be commended for not only their exceptional public speaking skills, but also for the time and effort involved preparing for the competition.
