    Past Events
    Hillmac Junior and Intermediate Speech Contests 2016 - 2019

    Anna started the Hillmac Junior and Intermediate Speech Contests in 2016 after coming to Hawke’s Bay from Auckland and realising a need for an area wide contest to promote oral language and confidence.

    Her motto: growing confident kids, one speech at a time.

    The contests were held at the National Aquarium of New Zealand and were cancelled this year due to the complications associated with Covid-19.

    They are open to all children throughout Hawke’s Bay, and schools have competed as far afield as Nuhaka, Frasertown and Wairoa through to Omakere and Flemington and Sherenden schools.

    Anna would like to thank the following sponsors for their continued support: Naming rights sponsor: Hillmac Electrical. Supporting sponsors: Kiwibank, Mammoth Print, Connec+, The Jam Consultancy, The National Aquarium of New Zealand, Biodiversity Hawke’s Bay.

    A powerful conversation help you see things in a new light, have different insights and even an ‘aha’ moment.

    It’s all about change.

    The focus on finding solutions and attaining big juicy hairy audacious exciting goals which stretch!
