Pretty Beach wins public speaking competition
A Pretty Beach Public School student has won the 2019 Hunter Central Coast Multicultural Perspectives Public Speaking Competition.
Pretty Beach's Macyn Van Borssum took out first place at the event and has qualified to represent the Central Coast at the regional final at Lewisham on August 19.
The competition has been running for the past 24 years as a means of developing confidence and public speaking skills in public school students and in fostering an understanding and interest in the multiculturalism present in Australia.
At the regional final, Macyn will be required to present both a prepared speech and an impromptu speech.
The prepared speech must be on a topic selected from a list of multicultural topics presented by the NSW Arts Unit that coordinates the competition.
Pretty Beach Public School relieving principal Mr Dave Rattray said the school was proud of Macyn and wished him luck at the regional finals.
