Year 8 students compete in "DC Talks" house event
In an endeavour to guide students towards achieving these ambitious goals, Doha College invited the Year 8 cohort to talk in front of an audience of their peers about any topic they felt passionate about. The aim was to give them the opportunity to practise public speaking in an environment that was simultaneously supportive, challenging and tuned to their interests.
Six speakers from each DC house were selected to take to the stage, and they were scored for the thoroughness of their research, the engagement with the audience, the relevance of their chosen topic and more. The judging panel included Principal Martin George, Deputy Principal Nick Taylor, House Coordinator Joanne Taylor and English Enrichment Coordinator Alexandra North.
