Public speaking update


​On Tuesday 11 October, four students from Years 5 and 6 participated in the AB Paterson Public Speaking competition.

These students came against approximately 200 students from schools across the Gold Coast, both state and private. These four students were simply sensational!

It was very evident that our St Bernard students had invested large amounts of their personal time and effort into writing not only informative but entertaining speeches.

The nerves that I know they all were feeling was completely invisible to the audience as they recited their well-rehearsed speeches off by heart with amazing use of pitch, tone, pace, expression and body language.

St Bernard State School community could not be more proud of the diligence, confidence and perseverance that these students demonstrated in the Public Speaking platform. Well done!
