Congratulations to our Year 13 student Brianna Murgatroyd who has soared in two Speech Competitions!
The Kiwanis Speech Competition is run annually by the St Heliers branch of the International Kiwanis Organisation. The competition is open to all high schools in the Eastern Bays area and Selwyn College has been a regular at this event.
This year our representative was Brianna. The competition was a challenge for her for two reasons: firstly, Brianna had been away for two weeks competing in the Ultimate Frisbee Under 18 International Tournament in Poland, and secondly, she arrived back in the country the day before she was due to speak. Brianna delivered her speech with passion and commitment on the ‘The value of remembering our history’. Her recent travels had given her a first-hand experience that she was able to incorporate into her speech, most notably a trip to Auschwitz. Her presentation was well received by both the audience and adjudicator and Brianna won the competition.
We are very proud of her.
