SPAF 2018 – Our Achievements at Singapore Performing Arts Festival

After months of preparation, students from J Carter Centre for Public Speaking were finally able to showcase their speaking and performing abilities at Singapore Performing Arts Festival (SPAF) 2018. A total of 52 students ranging from ages 7 years to 16 years represented our centre at the festival. This yearly festival is organised by MS Works Pte Ltd and we have been sponsoring the cash awards for the best speaker/performer since 2017.

This year, being the 10th Aniversary of J Carter Centre for Public Speaking, our founder, Jackeline Carter decided to increase the cash awards and supported more classes at the festival. In total, $900 worth of cash awards were given out. The sponsored classes were public speaking, impromptu speaking, storytelling, verse speaking and creative writing. The festival which was held on July 28 and 29 had 650 participants from Singapore and Johore. The ability level of the students was higher than in 2017 which is a testament to the growing popularity of this festival.

The results achieved by our students exceeded our expectations and we would like to congratulate everyone who participated in the festival. Special appreciation goes to the parents who put in extra effort to assist in preparing their children for the festival. In 2017, we sent 22 students for Public Speaking and Impromptu Speaking and in 2018 we decided to double the numbers to include our little ones who participated in verse speaking and storytelling as well.

The courage displayed by all the students was amazing. In front of adjudicators, parents, teachers and guests, each student spoke with enthusiasm. Although some faltered due to nervousness, no one gave up and everyone completed their speech or performance to the best of their ability. Awards were given out in the form of Gold Star, Gold, Silver and Bronze. Parents were advised not to admonish their children if they did not achieve a Gold but to celebrate their bravery for standing in front of an audience of friends, family and strangers to perform at their very best. It is because of this encouraging atmosphere that J Carter Centre loyally supports and participates in this yearly event. The eyes of the audience were also opened to how this festival was able to motivate their children to reach the next level of speaking and performance.

Although we did not sponsor the Teen classes, special mention goes to our student Maya Raisha Zainudin for achieving a Gold Star for Impromptu Speaking – Class 24 and a Gold for Public Speaking – Class 4. Maya is a graduate of J Carter Centre and she has completed her Grade 8 Trinity Certificate in Communication Skills in May 2018. She started her public speaking journey with us at the age of 9 years and completed the full course of the programme at the age of 16 years. She was personally coached by our founder, Jackeline Carter from the very beginning and was specially invited by her to participate in SPAF 2018 representing J Carter Centre for the Teen classes in the areas of Public Speaking and Impromptu Speaking. Well done Maya!
