Primary Schools’ Speech Contest

  • This week Kaikohe Rotary hosted the annual Kaikohe Primary Schools Speech Competition. More than 50 excited students, parents, teachers and family members came to the Kaikohe to hear words of wisdom from our most articulate tamariki. All of them spoke with passion about matters that concerned them. We heard about the adverse effects of social media, what plastics pollution is doing to our environment; and why New Zealand is such a great country to live in - among a wide range of topics.

  • Judges Robyn Clarke, Gary Linter-Cole and Richard McLaren had a tough job deciding on the winners and placegetters. But amongst much excitement they announced Aisha Davies-Cooper from Kaikohe Christian School as the winner of the Year 7 and 8 section.

  • Competition was especially fierce among year fives and sixes, with Charlie Robertson from Ohaeawai School,and Juztice Kopa from Kaikohe East School finishing third-equal. Portia Dalton from Kaikohe East School won first prize for her captivating presentation on why it is good to speak Te Reo, finishing ahead of Sam Weston from Ohaeawai School. But as President Valerie Dickson said, all the competitors deserved a medal for having the courage to get up and speak in public before a live audience.

  • It was a sad night because this was the last time Rotary will meet at Kaikohe RSA which closes at the end of this month. The RSA has been our host for many years and the staff have done a wonderful job in feeding and looking after us. President Valerie made presentations to each of the staff and wished them well in such a difficult time.
