Public Speaking

Home » Cultural » Public Speaking

Public speaking is an extremely popular activity at Jeppe. During the first term each year, ten teams are entered into the Public Speaking Festival organised by The College of Speech and Drama. Each team is trained by a member of staff and the girls are able to learn the skills of communicating with an audience, working in a group and writing meaningful speeches.

In the second term, the Individual Best Speaker competition is held. A number of pupils participate in this competition. Pupils work independently and trophies are awarded to the best Junior, Senior and Impromptu speakers.

An Afrikaans Public Speaking competition was run for the first time in 2015. Girls took part in their grades and prepared speeches on given topics.

The following girls were recognised in 2017 for their contribution to public  speaking:

Full Colours (New) – Ntsakisi Ntsekhe
