Mon 21st May
Toastmasters International School Gavel Club
To make a ‘toast’ as a mark of honour comes from the Roman practice of dropping a piece of burnt bread into bad wine to make it more palatable. In Shakespeare’s play The Merry Wives of Windsor, the character Falstaff asks for toast to be put in his ‘quart of sack’, and the modern use of the word ‘toasting’ began. Toasting became so popular in the 17th and 18th centuries that the craft of Toastmasters came into being.
Our Townsville Grammar Toastmasters International School Gavel Club provides you with an opportunity to:
- belong to a dynamic School Club
- develop meeting procedural practices
- acquire important work skills for your future career
- enhance your Public Speaking skills
- enrich your Leadership skills
As the Australian demographer Bernard Salt remarked,
“The next things the workforce of the future will require are soft skills like the ability to fit in seamlessly and to relocate and to adapt to different circumstances. It is the ability to walk up to a group and to self-confidently introduce yourself and to ask questions.”
The Gavel Club meet every second Monday 3:30 to 4:30pm.
