Seinfeld stated:  “At a funeral the average person would rather be in the casket than giving the eulogy”.  This does not apply to Oosterlig’s public speakers.

The annual public speaking evening on 16 September 2019 was very informative. Fifteen eloquent speakers aired their views on actual topics.  The audience enjoyed every insightful second.  The results were as follows:

Overall winner:  Reynard du Plessis

Most captivating speaker:  Harmen Potgieter

Most promising speaker:  Chanté Dover

The Oosie public speaking team entertained the audience with their presentation.  They convinced the audience that teenagers are zombies.  This winning team achieved first place at the National Inter schools public speaking league.

Oosterlig’s orators definitely have the gift of the gab.  This Oosterlig tradition is a platform for the youth to express their opinions.

Overall winner:  Reynard du Plessis
