Course Overview

This introductory level, 2-day course aims to give later primary school students a head start on their public speaking and speech writing skills in a fun and welcoming atmosphere. This course lays strong foundations by assisting students develop an understanding of speech preparation alongside the development of a confident and engaging speaking manner.

As with all of our programs, class sizes are kept small to ensure that students have ample opportunity to practice their skills and to receive regular individualised feedback from one of our experienced coaches.


Experience Levels

Our Hummingbirds Public Speaking course is a beginner program.

It is designed for students with little (or even no) experience presenting in front of audiences, and is perfect for shy and confident students alike!

If your child has some speaking experience and you’re not sure whether the Hummingbirds or Hawks (continuer) public speaking program is best for you, please get in touch and we’d be more than happy to discuss which is most appropriate for your child!


Main Objectives

During the course, students will be:

  • exposed to techniques that help build confidence and overcome fears;
  • introduced to the key components for preparing and presenting speeches;
  • shown how to effectively speak in front of n audience; and
  • given various opportunities to present impromptu and prepared speeches to the class.


Should I repeat the Hummingbirds Public Speaking program?

If your child has already had a go at our Hummingbirds Public Speaking course, they should join our Hawks Public Speaking group – you can find more information about the continuer Hawks Public Speaking program here!


Can I do both the Public Speaking and Debating programs?

Students are encouraged to do both of the Hummingbirds programs.

Whilst students are able to develop their confidence and speaking skills participating in either, both are very different skills, and are taught in different ways. Please get in touch if you’re interested in learning more about the differences between public speaking and debating!
