WOW!! we have so much talent here in Te Pou Herenga Waka.
Today we sat in support of 3 of our very own class mates and listened to them as they presented their speeches to our team along with 7 other competitors from different classrooms, and man were they amazing!!
Tumua’i spoke about perfection and how it consumes so many young people nowadays as they strive to achieve something that she considers to be overrated!!
Zayna wowed us with her speech about why kids her age shouldn’t have mobile phones and how it can distract people from the most important things in life – FAMILY!!
Jasmines speech was some what of a “spoken word” – Expressing her concerns of how bullying effects people in different ways, Jasmine attempted to persuade her peers how NOT to treat people as one day it might be too late to right your wrongs.
These three speakers made our class very proud, they really dug deep and came away with a FANTASTIC result with Jasmine gaining 1st place, Zayna placing 2nd and Tumua’i placing 3rd!!
Well done ladies – We look forward to having you represent our awesome team at our school speeches on the 9th of September 2016!!
Kia kaha, Kia maia, Kia manawanui
