Jifei will now go onto represent us at the zone Speech Competitions coming up later this term.

English Speech Winners Mandarin Speech Winners
This week we also ran our inaugural Mandarin Speech Competition. We had a good sized group of entrants and the competition was again of a high standard. I am proud to announce that Jifei also won this competition. I would also like to thank our invited guest judge Veronica Zane for adjudicating this event and Lisa Rolle for introducing this new event into our school calendar and for then organising it. Jifei will now also represent our school at the upcoming zones ‘Mandarin Speech’ competition. We are very proud of your double achievement Jifei , as winning these two different competitions really highlights the calibre of your speeches.
