NGHS held it’s The Annual Toastmasters Graduation ceremony on Monday, 09 March. Parents and Teachers of the Grade 11 graduates were in awe at the professionalism and speaking talent displayed by our young ladies. The learners presented their speeches effortlessly and performed their allocated duties necessary for running an official Toastmasters meeting without any assistance from facilitators.
