Public Speaking

Public speaking as a skill is highly valued by us and we develop these in many ways.

  1.   A five-week long compulsory public speaking course is offered to all Grade 5 children. It culminates in a presentation for all their parents.
  2.  Two Grade 7 public speaking teams are trained and entered into the High School’s Public Speaking Festival which is adjudicated by the Speech and Drama College (S.A.). They gain so much from this exposure and always excel. One of our teams won their section of the inter-high festival in 2015.
  3.  One entrant per grade, in the Intersen Phase, and two entrants per grade, in the Foundation Phase, compete in the SISA Inter-Schools Speech Evening. All students are in the running and the representatives are chosen by a process of elimination, including an internal speech evening. Our students have also been placed in the SISA inter-school event.
  4.  The students are also encouraged to use their public speaking skills in the Eisteddfod.



Our Vision is to create a Virtual School Experience for our students that incorporates the values and ethos of Ashton International College so that each student is able to unlock their potential in this dynamic world while following the IEB and Cambridge curricula to create endless opportunities.


Through the use of integrated and interactive multimedia tools, Ashton International College aims to provide a high quality holistic virtual experience for all their students, which creates endless opportunities for our students in this ever changing world.
The approach in our virtual school consist of the following OBJECTIVES:
Live student to teacher interaction which is crucial for the progress of the student, through a balanced, caring and relevant educational experience. Teachers must be committed, providing a holistic, balanced educational programme that focuses on the needs, aspirations and abilities of each individual child.
Live student to student interaction which creates critical and analytical thinking skills stimulating the progress of the students, inspiring them to develop knowledge, skills and confidence to succeed.
Excellence in our approach from passionate teachers to treat every student as a unique individual with different abilities which is essential to an individual’s personal and scholastic growth based on the fruit of the Spirit namely, Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness and Self-Control (Galatians 5 :22 – 23).
Pastoral and academic support for parents and students to assist during this unprecedented Covid-19 period.
