J Carter Centre for Public Speaking has been supporting the Singapore Performing Arts Festival since its early inception. Every year, our communication skills students will participate in several categories. The experience has expanded their skill sets in the area of public speaking and helped them gain confidence in the area of performance. We look forward to working together with the organisers MSWorks in this year’s event.
