Mr John Wallce – Speech and Variety Coordinator
The AB Paterson public speaking finals were held in the second week of Term Four. TSS boys who made the finals were Chaad Hewitt Year 8, Vishaak Gangasandra Year 10 and Maximilian Murray Year 12. These boys had to place highly in their heats and semis to make the final.
Maximilian Murray participating in the highly competitive Year 12 Division, with a Bond Scholarship up for grabs, came second to a young lady from AB Paterson. Maximilian gave it his all and the School is very proud of his efforts. He is an example of a boy in Year 8 who was not a confident speaker and who knew that in a Club like TSS Speech and Variety it was a platform for improvement in public speaking. Max improved year by year and is now an accomplished speaker. This year he won Declamations, Senior Impromptu and Prepared Speech competitions. An example of persistence and a never give up attitude. An excellent role model to the younger boys in the Club.
I congratulate all boys from TSS who entered the AB Paterson Public Speaking Competition this year.
