Recognising the importance of public speaking in plain English as an important communication skill, the English Department organized the school’s Third Plain English Speaking Intra-School Contest on 3 April 2014. The contest is an intra-school variant of the Third Plain English Speaking Inter-School Contest, the grand final of which will be held on 16 May 2014 at our school. The contest will enjoy the support of the English Speaking Union (ESU) of Hong Kong, and the NET Section, Education Bureau. Contestants from 7 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 26 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 3 April 2014.

All 26 contestants delivered rousing speeches which impressed the adjudicator. Given that it was an inaugural attempt for most of the contestants, all 26 students were indeed winners in their own right in the afternoon of 3 April 2014.

利用簡單英語作公開演講是重要的溝通技巧。英文科於四月三日舉辦第三屆英語演講校內決賽。在香港英語演講協會、教育局外籍教師組之全力支持下,第三屆英語演講比賽將於五月十六日假本校舉行決賽。本校校內決賽得勝者與來自七間不同中學的參賽者一拼高下。 英語演講比賽原意構思是為同學們提供一個寶貴機會,讓他們好好磨練演講技巧及增強公開演講的自信心,也讓同學藉著運用有效、清楚的英語,促進學生個人身心發展。在校內賽前,26名初中同學代表參加了共三節由本校外籍教師任教的公開演說技巧培訓班。透過訓練,加強他們的演講技巧,改善演講表現,好讓他們在校內比賽中能學以致用。

是次比賽,全部參賽同學都竭盡所能、用心演講最激動人心的講辭,令在席評判感動,並加以讚賞。對大部分同學來說,這是第一次參加公開演講比賽,但同學們都認真而盡力地投入其中,所以全部參賽同學都是「真正贏家」!
