Sec 4 & 5: Speaking at Stand & Deliver sessions


Modelled after Speaker’s Corner in Hong Lim Park, the school has an area in the canteen for students to deliver speeches during their recess times, hence the term ‘Stand and Deliver’ as they have to stand on a podium to deliver their speeches. Students who are scheduled are to speak will gather their classmates during recess and these students will form the crowd to listen to the speakers.

Students are given opportunities to speak on a variety of given topics, such as Racial Harmony or friendship. They may also read news articles or stories aloud. We also encourage students to use this platform to speak on topics they are passionate about, such as animal protection or books they enjoy reading.
