Thank you warmly to all schools, their students and teachers who attended the 2016 ISABC Public Speaking Competition at West Point Grey Academy on Thursday 21st April.
83 Students from 16 different schools competed, and the standard of their speeches was exceptional, making the job of the 42 judges a most difficult one. The Grade 6 students gave speeches of welcome or farewell; the Grade 7 students spoke persuasively on a subject of their choosing.

The first and second placings for the two grades went to the following students:

Grade 6
First Place: Bianca Galvin, York House
Runner-up: Sophie Baker, York House

Grade 7
First Place: Kiran Dhana, Stratford Hall
Runner-up: Gabriella Turner, Crofton House

The overall winning school was York House.
