Public speakers were not born that way. Their skills were developed through their school experience of debate, discussion groups and engaging in dialogues with their teachers. Although the term might not be used, their education included “oracy” – skills in using spoken language, as well as the unspoken language, literacy and numeracy.

A speech is more than a set of spoken words. It’s a combination of the speaker, the context and the language, and when it works together it neatly assembles some great public speakers.

This past week, Abbotts College Centurion, attended Abbotts College Inter Campus Orators’ Evening at Abbotts College Northcliff. Tabitha Venter (Grade 11), Hadrian Bezuidenhout (Grade 12) and Ndza Shilubana (Grade 10) represented the Centurion team against students from the other Gauteng Campuses of Abbotts College.

This formidable team made a lasting impression on the judges with their gift of the gab and ability to capture the audience’s attention.

“Public speaking is a 21st-century core skill that provides many benefits for a student’s future, whether speaking to a small group of people or to a stadium filled with 50 000. Once gained, public speaking makes a person more confident overall, teaches social connections, enhances communication and inspire others.

“We are extremely proud of these students and wish them well with their public speaking in future,” says Sanet van Rensburg, Principal of Abbotts College Centurion.
