Kirkwood Whaikōrero (Speech) competition: Congratulations to all the students who have presented speeches over the past few weeks. It is a daunting task and the feedback I have heard for teachers, parents and students is that there was a lot of hard work behind the scenes and some entertaining and moving speeches shared.

Congratulations too to the students selected to represent your class. Please check in with your teacher this morning to ensure we have the correct title for your speech. 

Year 7 speeches will start at 11am. Line up quietly with your class outside the hall after morning tea. Year 8 starts at 12. Your teachers will bring you over. You will need to be very quiet as you line up as we may be completing the last of the Year 7 speeches. 

The job of the audience is an important one for speeches and our expectations are that you will be attentive, settled and sensible. This will give the speakers the best shot of delivering their speeches well. Good Luck!

No PMP  for Year 7 & 8 today as it’s Speech Day. Thank you
