Students speak for assembly
STUDENTS at Emerald Christian College had to overcome nerves with the school taking part in the college’s first speech assembly.
Students from Prep to Year 10 prepared speeches for their class and the best competed in two special assemblies which were judged according to six criteria including content and delivery, humour and relevance to the topic.
The Year 10 students had the added challenge of an impromptu question on which they had to speak for one minute.
They were asked about the issue of fly in, fly out miners and the effect this had on families living in Emerald.
The length of speeches ranged from 60 seconds to six minutes and topics were varied ranging from lifeguards to Martin Luther King, the Tickle Monster to Lions, and the future to past heroes.
