Speech Competition

speech competition

The KwaZulu-Natal Museum hosted a Speech Competition at the Museum yesterday, targeted at Grade 10 & 11 history learners. Learners were invited to address the topic “TO WHAT EXTENT AS SOUTH AFRICANS ARE WE LIVING TO THE VALUES THAT NELSON MANDELA STOOD FOR? “ Of the schools that attended, one learner from each school did a 10 minute presentation. The panel of adjudicators comprised Ms Quigley and Ms Mkhize, both publishers from Shuter and Shooter, Ms Dlamini, a subject advisor from the department of education as well as Dr Geoff Blundell, Head of our Human Sciences department at the KZN Museum. The top 5 learners were Njoko Simlindile (Nsikayethu Secondary); Madlala Lindokuhle (St John Paul II); Twayinga Onelisa (Kharina Secondary); Xulu Nomali (Masjabule High); Ndlovu Nokulunga (Georgetown High) Dumisani Jali from the KZN Museum Education Department and were all rewarded with an all-expense paid trip to Robben Island Museum in Cape Town, during the September school holidays, on a learning programme. #mandela100#kznmuseum
