563 candidates, 20 schools and 33 categories.
This was the fierce competition that our students faced for this year’s French Speech Competition which took place in November 2021. Whether you recited a poem by Jacques Prévert or chose your own piece of prose, the challenge was to demonstrate your eloquent oratory skills in French, against students from across Hong Kong.
