Each year over 1000 students enter the Public Speaking arena from the schools in and around the Gold Coast, as the College hosts its annual Public Speaking Competition.
Public Speaking is never an easy task, generating anxiety in most people, but like many unfamiliar and uncomfortable experiences, practice definitely helps to build confidence. It is a skill that will last a life time.
The College's competition is an excellent opportunity to build on a communication skill that is needed in every walk of life, whether it be a speech at a family wedding, an interview with media, a presentation at a conference, or a maiden speech in Parliament.
