DHPS Learners excel at Public Speaking Competition

On Saturday, 6 August 2022 the national Kurt Böhme Speaking Competition was held at the DHPS and the young speakers from different Namibian schools impressed with their talents. The grade 9 and 11 learners didn´t make it easy for the judges Dr. Andreas Götze (German Embassy Windhoek), Naita Hishoono (Namibia Institute for Democracy), Erika von Wietersheim (journalist and author) and Jasko Rust (Hitradio Namibia).

Gabriele Ritzdorf (DHPS, topic: “Trophy hunting – killing for fun?”) was able to impress the judges within the grade 9 junior category. Arik Blatt (Private School Swakopmund (PSS), topic: “True/Product Beauty”) ranked second and Kai Precht (PSS, topic: “Trophy hunting”) achieved third place.
In the grade 11 senior category, DHPS learner Maike Metzger took first place with her speech on the topic “Happiness as the goal in life”. Daniel Koch (DHPS, topic: “Unconditional basic income”) ranked second and Ndeshimona Huzatijke ( Delta Secondary School Windhoek (DSSW), topic: “I´m sorry, no time”) achieved third place.
The DHPS learners Desirée Kollmitz and Nicole Redecker fondly guided the audience through the event.

Congratulations to our eloquent DHPS learners Maike Metzger (Grade 11) and Gabriela Ritzdorf (Grade 9) on their first places at the national Kurt Böhme Speaking Competition.

A big thank you to our teacher Ms Trusch who organized the national finals with the support of our colleagues Ms Jenner and Ms Kernstock.
