Gippsland Grammar is committed to enhancing the oral communication skills of its students. We believe that speaking well and with confidence is a valuable asset in later life and aim to provide our students with many opportunities to develop and refine the skills of effective public speaking.
All students are encouraged to develop the skills of good public speaking. Fostered through the English curriculum, all students participate in speech, debating, role-play and other public speaking activities. For those students who wish to undertake this activity competitively, the School provides intensive tutorial assistance to develop students' skills in speech writing, as well as oratorical skills in prepared and impromptu speaking. Students compete in Rostrum, Legacy, Gippsland Independent Schools and Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority. public speaking competitions throughout the year, as well as the School's internal competitions.
