GHS Annual Speech Competition

By Ms Maria Heitkonig | Posted: Wednesday June 28, 2017

On Wednesday night the Annual Geraldine High School Speech Competition once again showcased the talents of our students. The speakers spoke confidently and with passion on a range of topics. 

As always, parents, friends and staff were present in large numbers. A special thank you to Dan Waldie who acted as MC, Shirley Lindroos for filming the event and Ethan Hornsby for taking photographs of the participants. 

And of course, we really appreciate the time and thought our judges have put in. The judges of the semi-finals, Dan Waldie, Jill Roberts, Sarah Prescott, Michelle Cramond and Andy Morrison and the judges of the finals Chelley Leov and Desiree McCaskill had some difficult decisions to make.
