A CERTIFICATE presentation ceremony was held recently to mark participants’ success at the Oratory Workshop for Secondary School Teachers.
The event at the Sports School’s lecture hall was organised by the Akli Unit at the Co-curriculum Education Department of Ministry of Education.
The guest of honour was Awang Roslin bin Suhailee, Acting Assistant Director of the Co-curriculum Education Department.
Forty-seven teachers from 25 secondary schools took part in the workshop, with Ustaz Haji Mail bin Besar as facilitator. The goals of this workshop were to generate interest and knowledge among teachers in the world of oratory competition, as well as to pass on this know-how to the students for oratory competitions as part of their co-curricular education. It is hoped that the students will have the ability to present their oratory pieces in a confident and efficient manner.
The core contents of the workshop included Public Speaking, Introduction to Oratory, Discussions, Oratory Techniques, Preparation of Oratory Text, and Oratory Training for Competition.
