Japanese Speech Contest

Japanese Speech Contest

On Saturday 1 September Darwin High School students attended the 2018 Northern Territory Japanese Speech Contest. The NT Japanese Speech Contest is the regional contest used to select a Northern Territory representative for the National competition.

While only Year 11 and Year 12 students are eligible for the National competition, the Northern Territory competition is open to all students from primary to senior school  and was founded and supported by LTANT, AJANT and the NT Department of Education.

Over the last couple of months the Darwin High students had conducted research using various resources in Japanese and then created their speech in Japanese. The students practised their presentation in class as well as during recess and lunch and while memorising their speech was not a requirement for the competition, most students did to allow them to better engage with the audience.

Darwin High School teacher, Mariko Ruzsicska said

Congratulations to all the Darwin High School students who participated. It was a challenging experience and everyone performed very well.

Special mention to the students below who achieved outstanding results:

1st : Yoojin Choi

2nd : Eric Kitazato Mu

3rd: Vy Chau

Yoojin Choi won first place and will compete in the National Japanese Speech Contest in Sydney on 6 October.
