Sunninghill— 14 September 2018 — This afternoon at the Annual St Peter’s College Sport and Cultural Festival, the winners of the Pavement Drawing Competition as well as the Public Speaking Competition were announced. The Festival is a celebration of sports prowess and cultural endeavors by students for students. St Peter’s College believes firmly in the development of the whole child and thus insists that the Festival empowers all abilities.
Public Speaking Competition
The Public Speaking competition was run over two rounds with 34 entrants from 6 schools. In the first round, a prepared speech was presented. Finalists were then selected to speak on an impromptu topic in the St Peter’s College Madditorium. The Best Speaker award went to Tadiwanashe Zororo and runner-up to Syjil Ramjuthan both from St Peter’s College. After the competition, a two-hour Debating Adjudicator’s Workshop for Students was presented by Mrs. Camille Koukoutsis from the St Peter’s College English Department.
Pavement Drawing Competition
This competition attracted 12 teams from 4 different schools with 33 students and challenged the artists to make a chalk drawing on a tarred road with the theme; “Water.” The event, in part sponsored by Herbert Evans Art Shop, leaves its mark each year. The third place was awarded to St Andrews’ School for Girls with their artwork: “Bursting Sea Life”. Second was St David’s Marist School with “Expression of a Spill.” The overall winning entry was “The Birth of the Earth in the 22nd Century” chalk drawing by Dominican Convent.
The Photography Workshop as well as the vibrant Music Tea Garden (with performances on a wide range of instruments from DJ to Marimba) continues to draw interest throughout the day. The cultural events continue tomorrow, 15 September with the Music Tea Garden, Choir Festival, Grade 8 Debating Competition, Photography Competition and a special Open Rehearsal by the Contemporary and Street Dance Crew of St Peter’s College.
