Thursday 18 August was the amazing 2016 senior speech finals that went from 9am to 11am. Six awesome amazing thrilling speeches went to the finals from Room 6 and 7, then four speeches went through from Room 5, Henry Lee was sick. The 2016 senior speech finals took place at the library. The year 5/6 students were Max Lowe, Campbell Norton, Henry Claridge, Elizabeth Vierboom, Ashlyn McDowell and Francesca Hickey. The year 7/8 students were James Claridge, Maude Hughes and Ella Deane plus Henry Lee. There were three judges (well hopefully they judged fair) they were Mr Keenan, Mr Gillard and Mrs Norrish. There were only 2 places 1st, 2nd and highly recommended. In the year 5/6 Henry, Ashlyn Francesca and Max got highly commended, 2nd place was Elizabeth and 1st place was Campbell. Highly commended was Ella, 2nd place was James and 1st place was Maude. All the ten awesome amazing thrilling speeches got great feedback. Campbell came 1st so now he’s going to represent MBS at HPPA speech finals!
