On Thursday 11 May Esther H. (9LDA), Tiffany M. (9GTA) and Nathasha J. (11CRIV) competed in the 2023 Ainger Peck Public Speaking Award.

The event was held at Melbourne Girls College and over 100 students from schools throughout Melbourne participated in the prestigious public speaking competition.

Students were invited to present a speech that they were passionate about in four minutes. Students were adjudicated on the theatrics and the delivery of the speech including tone, pace, timing, projection, eye contact, confidence and memorisation of the speech.

The standard was extremely strong and very impressive. This is the first time OLMC has participated in the Ainger Peck Award and Esther, Tiffany and Nathasha represented OLMC beautifully. It was a wonderful opportunity and experience and we look forward to competing again next year.
