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.
The school also participates in the Rotary Best Speaker competition each October.
