The process by which our students did their speeches. Firstly they had to choose from one of the six pre-determined topics. They then had to perform their speeches in class (its compulsory for all students at Melville Intermediate School to do so). Then the Year 7 Syndicate and the Year 8 Syndicate had their respective finals. They each nominated two speakers who spoke at the School Assembly on November 5th 2009. This is Joe's speech from Y8.
