On Saturday, 19 March 2022, a group of Skrine lawyers and pupils comprising Rachel Chiah, Ann Tiang Wen En, Elizabeth Goh, Ng Kar Man, Kailash Kalaiarasu, Laarnia Rajandran, Lee Hui Wen, Wong Shun Yong, Sarah binti Azahar, Siti Syafiqah binti Abdul Jalil
and Ho Pui Yan
conducted a virtual Public Speaking workshop for a group of secondary school students from across Malaysia. This is part of Skrine’s collaboration with Project ID.
The workshop started with a presentation by the Skrine team on the key steps to public speaking with a focus on preparation and delivery. Everyone then moved into the breakout rooms, during which the students had the opportunity to deliver their own speeches on topics and materials that had been prepared and circulated by the Skrine team in advance of the workshop. The students demonstrated an eagerness to learn as many came well-prepared and were also willing to deliver their speeches despite feeling nervous. After each student presented, they were given encouraging and constructive feedback from their designated Skrine facilitators.
The workshop ended with the students sharing their key takeaways. It was heartening to hear that the students found the workshop to be insightful and that they felt it was a warm and welcoming environment to practice public speaking despite having stage fright.
We look forward to continuing our work with Project ID for the upcoming workshops and activities for the year 2022.
