Primary Schools Public Speaking Event

Tue 7th October 2014 at 19.00 - 22.00

Rotary Club of Aberdeen Deeside hosted the 2014 Primary Schools Public Speaking Competition at Airyhall Primary School, Aberdeen.

Event winner Abby Strachan with Vocational and Youth convenor John Whitfield.

A total of twenty primary school pupils from five schools competed against each other for the coveted Rotary trophy. They had a choice from three different topics to speak about. These were World War One, Weather, or My Hobby. Their maturity and skill at presenting was quite amazing for people so young and they were all a credit to both their schools and their parents. 

The judging was by a panel of three Rotarians who scored the presenters based on talk structure, quality of content, skill in delivery and interest and enjoyment for the audience. The competition was closely fought with a winner being announce from each school and one overall winner.























This year the overall winner was Abby Strachan from Culter Primary School with a wonderful engaging talk about her hobby of playing the Cornet.  Abby can be seen below with the other school winners and also above with her Cornet and trophy with the Vocational and Youth convenor John Whitfield.
