English evening

English evening

The English Evening is presented once a term, for the first three terms. Learners compete in presenting a speech, whether specially prepared for the occasion, or one already presented in class.

Learners are also given the opportunity to recite a poem – many participants use the opportunity to showcase a poem written by themselves. This activity gives learners the opportunity to hone their skills in English in front of an audience comprising learners from other grades, parents and teachers. It teaches self-confidence and provides a sounding board for their thoughts and emotions. The best speaker in the school is awarded the PNHS English Speaker Trophy annually and receives Half Colours (Colours if achieved in consecutive years). 100% participation in any given year earns a learner a certificate, two years of 100% participation is rewarded with an Honours Certificate, three years with Half Colours and four years with Colours.

Invariably great fun is had by all present at English Evenings.
