  Here is an exciting opportunity for those passionate about speech & race relations,

The Race Unity Speech Awards are a platform for senior high school students from years 11 to 13 to express their ideas on how we can improve race relations in Aotearoa. The Speech Awards give eloquent and thoughtful young people a chance to speak their minds and give the rest of New Zealand a chance to listen to the leaders of tomorrow. The Speech Awards are held in support of Race Relations Day.

This year's theme is about the role of unity and now can come together as a community to foster the ideals of strength and unity as one while providing solutions to face the challenges New Zealand is experiencing with race relations.

Our first meeting is Friday (1st of March) lunchtime at N16, the Speech & Debating Prefects will be taking the session to explain all the details and get you writing!
