The Stockley Cup Public Speaking competition was held on Monday 10 September at Wellington Girls’ College, with six speakers competing in the junior section for the Dunsheath Plate, and eight speakers in the senior section for the Stockley Cup.
The range of speech topics varied from racism, feminism, the Mary Celeste, and expectations on students. The judges (Daniel Wilson, Richard D’Ath, and Duncan McLachlan) were very impressed by the quality of all the competitorsâ€™ speeches.
