Primary Schools Public Speaking Competition 2018
The Rotary Club of Aberdeen Deeside hosted the 2018 Primary Schools Public Speaking Competition at Milltimber Primary School, Aberdeen.
A total of eighteen primary 7 school pupils from five local primary schools competed against each other for the coveted Rotary trophy. They had a choice from three topics to present about. These were
• Plastic - do we need it?
• Is it beneficial for a family to have a pet?
• What impact will robots have in our lives?
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 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 announced from each school and one overall winner.
This year the overall winner was Angel George from Kingswell primary school with a wonderful engaging and interesting talk on “Plastic - do we need it?”.
Angel can be seen below being presented with her winners’ trophy by Aberdeen Deeside Vocational and Youth team.
