The  2017 Primary Schools Public Speaking Competition was held on the evening of Tuesday 3th October 2017.   A total of nineteen primary school pupils from five local primary schools competed against each other for the coveted Rotary trophy.

They had a choice to speak from three different topics being

  •     Our future planet
  •     A person who has inspired me the most
  •     My hobby or special interest.

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 Ailsa Williams from Peterculter primary school with a wonderful engaging and interesting talk on Walt Disney who was a person who inspired her most.

Ailsa can be seen here being presented with her winners’ trophy by Aberdeen Deeside Vocational and Youth convenor John Whitfield.
