Nine student participants of the first Nobel International School Algarve (NISA) “Speak” programme hosted a gala dinner to showcase their public speaking skills to parents and teachers.

The gala dinner took place at the school’s boarding house in Armação de Pêra and saw 50 guests gather for drinks and canapés and to be welcomed by hosts for the evening, Chase Taggart and Sasha DeGroot.

Students, all in Year 11 to 13, played roles such as hosts, speakers, evaluators, spontaneous speakers and timekeeper and worked brilliantly as a team.
