Year 12 student Bella Christie was thrilled to receive the news from Speech New Zealand that she was the recipient of their award for Excellence in the Use of Language and Expression in Speech and Drama Performance.
Bella was nominated by the examiner for one of the modules of the Grade 7 Speech and Drama examination that she completed in 2016. She was then chosen from all of the nominees throughout New Zealand based on her overall results and the examiners’ recommendation. Bella was congratulated at an assembly where she received her certificate and a monetary prize from the sponsor of the award.
