SAGA, Swan City Toastmasters Club and Toastmasters Club Sibu jointly organised "Inter-School Public Speaking Speech Contest 2010" this afternoon at Wei Kuok Hall.
This was the first of its kind by SAGA and the two English-speaking Toastmasters clubs in Sibu. SAGA chairman Temenggong Vincent Lau in his opening address said," This joint effort augurs well and I hope to see more to come!'
The speech contest aimed at providing a platform for secondary school students to learn from each other through contest. With this, the organisers hoped to raise the local standard of students in public speaking.
I noted that most of the participants exhibited pretty high standard of public speaking in English. I was deeply impressed!
I hope SAGA would continue to take initiative to organise English-orientated activities.
Hurray, SAGA & Toastmasters clubs!
