Highlights of 2018! It is that time of the year when we sit back and reflect on what we have accomplished, the lessons we have learned and the mistakes we have made.
In our 9 years of teaching over 1000 students from different schools, we realised that only ONE thing separates an inspiring speaker from an average one when it comes to communication.
I will be introducing a Talent Development Communications Programme that will help students who will be attempting the DSA route in 2020 and 2021.
Do your children have difficulty reading fluently or hold a conversation on general knowledge subjects?
The Singapore Performing Arts Festival 2017 is now open for registration. This year J Carter Centre for Public Speaking will be sponsoring two of the Categories – Public Speaking and Impromptu Speaking. The organizers has decided to offer a $50 cash award to the top 3 overall best speakers for these two categories.
Congratulations to our student Themis Lai for scoring 100 marks in the Trinity College Graded Examinations in Communication Skills – Grade 3.
Every year, thousands of students sit for the GAT or HAST test in order to gain entry to IP schools. This is usually the first phase of the DSA selection process and if your child is unable to test well for this segment, he/she will not move on to the next phase of the process.
We will have 3 Runs during the June school Holidays and 15 topics will be covered over 3 days. Last year, one of our topics appeared in the PSLE oral exams which pleased the students who attended the workshop.
Once again, our centre has achieved amazing results in the LAMDA Examinations. We had 100% passes with a Distinction rate of 93%.
2016 saw many changes to the DSA selection process and it was certainly a trial run to test out upcoming changes to the DSA system in 2017. Competition for IP schools was the toughest since its inception in 2004 due to increase applications. At the end of the 2016 selection process, there were many surprise outcomes as well as disappointments among the parents and students who undertook this route.
