Recognising the importance of public speaking in plain English as an important communication skill, the English Department organized the school’s second Plain English Speaking Intra-School Contest on 10 April 2013. The contest is a preface to the Second Plain English Speaking Inter-School Contest, the grand final of which will be held on 8 July 2013 at our school. The contest will enjoy the support of the NET Section, Education Bureau; and contestants from 10 schools across Hong Kong will pit their skills against one another on that day.

The Plain English Speaking Contest was conceived to provide an avenue for students to sharpen their speaking skills and build confidence in public presentation, in addition to promoting the personal development of students through the use of clear and effective spoken English. The Intra-School round saw 30 student contestants, representing all Junior form classes, attending a series of 3 training sessions conducted by the school’s NET. Through the training, the contestants learnt both speech writing and delivery techniques. The contestants subsequently put their skills to the test on 10 April 2013. The top three winners of this round will represent our school at the Inter-School Final on 8 July 2013.

All 30 contestants delivered rousing speeches which impressed the adjudicator. Given that it was an inaugural attempt for most of the contestants, all 30 students were indeed winners in their own right on that afternoon.

為提升同學的英語演講技巧,英文科今年舉辦第二屆英語演講比賽。今屆英語演講比賽分為校內賽和聯校賽,校內賽已於4月10日順利舉行。

英語演講比賽為同學提供了一個提升個人演講技巧和自信的平台。借此機會,同學能應用清晰而準確的英語會話,推動個人發展。三十位來自各班別的初中同學獲挑選參加校內賽。比賽前,他們參加了由本校外籍老師指導的演講培訓班,從中學習如何撰寫演講辭和表達技巧。同學在校內賽能發揮所學,學以致用。他們精采的演講辭令評判留下深刻的印象。這次活動令同學獲益良多。

校內賽的三位得獎者將會代表學校出戰7月8日假本校禮堂舉行的聯校賽,和來自九間中學的代表一決高下。教育局外籍英語教師組十分支持這次比賽。
