Lions Mad Minute champions crowned

The Lower Limestone Coast Lions Mad Minute public speaking competition has concluded with Mulga Street Primary School winning the large schools division and Suttontown Primary School winning the trophy for small schools.

Trophies for the top individual speakers at last week’s Grand Challenge were awarded to Lienke Fick from Mulga Street, Riley Dixon from Suttontown and Zara Martin from Moorak.

First place winner Lienke spoke on the topic ‘that birds are annoying’.

INDIVIDUALS: Lions Mad Minute 2024 individual trophy winners Zara Martin, Lienke Fink and Riley Dixon.

The competition requires senior primary students to speak for one minute on a topic drawn at random and is designed to be a fun way of developing the important life skill of public speaking.

School teams were chosen after judges from the Lions Club of Mount Gambier visited 18 schools in and around the district, including Glencoe, Kalangadoo and Kongorong.

Mount Gambier North R-7 School rejoined the competition this year after a break of several years.

The competition is hosted by the Lions Club of Mount Gambier and supported by Lions Clubs throughout the region.

The Lower Limestone Coast Grand Challenge was held in the Garry Costello Creative Arts Centre at Mount Gambier High School.

This year’s competition involved more than 1000 students from a total of 35 schools across the entire region.

WINNING TEAM: Mulga Street Primary School’s winning team in the Lions Mad Minute competition included Lienke Fink and Ryder Wilkinson.
