Tonight Jacob and Mitch travelled to Endeavour Hills to compete in the District Public Speaking Competiton. Both age groups consisted of 4 speakers from different schools in the local area.
Jacob spoke second in his age group and blew the audience away with the quality of his speech. At first he seemed nervous but there was no need to be as he delivered an incredible speech about his favourite place ‘The Library’.
Mitch also spoke second in his competition and followed in Jacobs footsteps by equalling his efforts to deliver a typical Mitch speech. He talked about all the wonderful landmarks and tourist attractions around Beaconsfield.
We all waited nervously for the judges to come to a decision, when it was finally announced that Beaconsfield had won both competitions. Jacob surprised only himself as we all expected him to be named the winner. Mitch accepted his award with a great big grin on his face as he regained his title from two years ago!
Both boys have advanced to the next round (pretty much a grand final) on Saturday the 7th of October at Trafalgar where they will go for the glory.
We are very proud of both these boys as the competition was of an exceptional standard. Congratulations Jacob and Mitch!
