Encouraged by the success of the First Plain English Speaking Contest 2011/2012, the English Department of our school organised the Second Plain English Speaking Contest 2012/2013, together with New Territories Heung Yee Kuk Yuen Long District Secondary School as a co-organiser. The Second Plain English Speaking Contest is a public speaking contest for all Junior form students from schools in the New Territories (West) and other government schools; and is supported by the NET Section, Education Bureau.

Conducted over 4 months, the Second Plain English Speaking Contest provided 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. 30 student contestants, representing all Junior form classes, attended a series of 3 training sessions conducted by our school’s NET. Through the training, the contestants learnt both speech writing and delivery techniques. The contestants subsequently put their oratorical skills to the test at 2 Preliminary rounds, which saw 2 contestants, Lam Yat Ching, Gina (1C) and Wong Tsz Tung, Sonia (3A), emerging as winners to represent our school at the Semi-final.

The Semi-final was held on 7 May 2013 at N.T. Heung Yee Kuk Yuen Long District Secondary School, and saw 20 contestants from 10 government and aided schools across Hong Kong pitting their public speaking skills against one another. It was a close competition, and 10 contestants finally earned themselves coveted places in the Final.

The Final of the Second Plain English Speaking Contest 2012/2013 was held successfully on the morning of 8 July at Chiu Lut Sau Memorial Secondary School. 10 finalists from 6 schools were locked in an intense neck and neck competition. They delivered rousing speeches that earned the adjudicators’ commendation for the sheer quality and confident delivery of their speeches.

Our student, Lam Yat Ching, Gina (1C), won the coveted Championship of the contest; whilst Queen Elizabeth School’s 2 finalists swept both the 1st and 2nd Runner-up prizes. Notwithstanding, all finalists were winners in their own right that morning - for their spunky performance in the presence of a huge audience, and in English Language to boot.

繼上年成功舉辦英語演講比賽後,本校今年聯同新界鄉議局元朗區中學合辦第二屆英語演講比賽。這次比賽獲教育局外籍教師組的支持,為新界西中學和其他官校的初中同學提供了一個公開演說英語的機會。

第二屆英語演講比賽為同學提供了一個增進公開演說技巧和自信的機會。我們希望學生透過運用簡潔的英語來進行演說,從而促進個人發展。本校30名初中同學參加了由本校外籍老師任教的公開演說技巧培訓班。他們在兩輪初賽中發揮所學,經過一輪比試後,1C林逸晴和3A王芷彤成功晉級,代表本校參加準決賽。

準決賽於5月7日假新界鄉議局元朗區中學禮堂舉行。20名來自官校及津校的同學在比賽上盡顯公開演說的才華。最後,其中十名參賽者成功晉身總決賽,當中包括本校兩位代表。

總決賽已於7月8日假本校禮堂順利舉行。十位來自六間中學的參賽者在台上發揮所長。當日,賽況激烈,評判對同學精彩和自信的演說高度讚賞。最後,本校1C林逸晴奪得第二屆英語演講比賽冠軍,亞季和季軍則由伊利沙伯中學兩名代表獲得。
