School pro­gram and Lions Club

Isis Town and Country - - News -

TOASTMASTERS has been pro­vid­ing a pro­gram in Childers since late last year, to give the com­mu­nity the op­por­tu­nity to learn skills to speak with con­fi­dence.

The Area 10 Di­rec­tor for Dis­trict 69 in Toastmasters, Dawn Smith has been run­ning the Speechcraft Pro­gram.

The eight-week Youth Lead­er­ship Pro­gram was held at the Isis High School, with the stu­dents gain­ing new skills and con­fi­dence.

The Lions Club has been sup­port­ive and pro­vided funds to pur­chase work books, lights and a gavel.

The club pre­sented a cheque to act­ing prin­ci­pal Chris Gill. Mr Gill said Toastmasters was a pub­lic speak­ing pro­gram for se­nior stu­dents, gain­ing new skills and con­fi­dence.

“It cul­mi­nates in a grad­u­a­tion where stu­dents re­ceive a cer­tifi­cate recog­nis­ing their pro­fi­ciency in pub­lic speak­ing,” he said.
