Students persuade with speeches

The 28th Waiuku Rotary Speech contest was held on Wednesday 5 July, with students from schools throughout west Franklin taking part.
Held at the Waiuku War Memorial Hall, there were a range of speech topics including, women’s rights, gender discrimination, environmental pollution, animal testing and why war is not okay.
The calibre of talent was high and it was a difficult decision for judges Helena Russel and Maree Hamilton, to select an overall winner, however that title went to Kirsten Watts of Waiuku Primary School who spoke on ‘It’s not the dog, it’s the owner.’
The night was enjoyed by everyone.
