Interschool Speech Champion-Kate

last night I went to the interschool speech FINALS!
At first I was really excited but when I got to the hall I started to get a bit scared. I was told that I was the last speaker "Yay!" I thought but when I was listening to the other kids speeches I was getting a bit worried, they were really good.
When they called my name to tell me to go up, I was SO scared but when I started I got a nice calm feeling.
Then the judges went to decide, I went over to my Mum and Dad. They told me that I was really good and that I might win.
When the judges came back in I went back to my seat. Then they told everyone who came 3rd then 2nd and then 1st... I came 1st!!!!!
I went over to the judges and got the cup they also gave me a $50 gift card to Postie Plus.
We went home and I got in to bed.
"Thank gosh," I thought, "I'm glad I got that off my chest!"

This is my speech;


  1. Kate what a great recount and a wonderful photo! I guess going last you would have been relieved to start with as the first speaker would have been nervous, but then once everyone went and got there's out the way it would have also been hard because you would have known that you'd have to go on last. Your parents must have been very proud and that's a really nice moment for you too.
