We recently attended the Primary Schools Public Speaking evening at the Wonthaggi Arts Centre.
This is put on each year by the Wonthaggi Rotary Club and this happened to be the event’s 20th year.
I have attended most of these evenings and each year the children truly excel themselves.
I was sorry that there were not more adults there to hear them and encourage them.
As they are the future citizens of our towns, I feel encouragement and support is so necessary, so if you want a free and very entertaining evening, put it in your diary for next year!
The research and imagination which each child, aged about 10 years, put into their speech of five minutes was astounding, and I congratulate them all as each year it seems harder to pick a winner.
