Fairhills High and World Vision in Partnership

Recently, FD worked with students from Fairhills High School who are partnering with World Vision to raise funds for and visit a disadvantaged Vietnamese community later this year. FD’s mission was to equip the students with confident speaking skills they could then use to persuade others to give generously in sponsorship of the overseas community, and to provide students with tips and skills for interacting with members of that community when they visit! Students developed the art of engaging others using appealing verbal and non-verbal communication techniques and learned how to weave persuasive arguments. The sessions were highly interactive and hands-on, with voice modulation and projection exercises integrated into speeches and debating on topics ranging from feminism in pop culture to children’s health issues.
