Geelong Japanese Speech Contest

The Geelong Japanese Speech Contest was held on Sunday 22 July at Kardinia International College. About 60 participants from seven secondary schools in the Western region of Victoria participated in the contest and impressed the judges and audience with their excellent language and presentation skills.

The participants who were in Year 5 to Year 12 delivered short set speeches and their original speeches in Japanese. It was an opportunity for students not only to gain speaking skills in Japanese but also to meet a group of young people who hold the same passion toward Japanese learning.

Our college proudly had the largest group of the enthusiastic participants again this year and brought back many awards. They demonstrated their growing mindset by their commitment and challenging themselves to such a huge task. They spent much time of their own time preparing for the contest and performed their speeches confidently in front of a large audience. 

We congratulate all the students on their great effort and achievements. We also thank their parents for their support in their child’s Japanese learning.
