Each year the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) hosts the Plain English Speaking Awards (PESA) in which VCE students from around Victoria are invited to speak on ideas and topics of interest to them which are relevant in our current world. The competition provides an excellent opportunity for students to build self-confidence and extend their skills in oral communication, speech writing and research.
Michael Hadj represented the College proudly in 2017, giving a rousing and well received speech on the Syrian government and our perceptions of its role in the current political situation. According to Michael, this was “a great opportunity to speak about something I was passionate about to a likeminded audience of gifted orators.
We congratulate Michael on representing the College at this competition.
