The University of Kelaniya Gavel club is an outstanding student organization with the main intention of helping the undergraduates as well as the school community to enhance their communication, public speaking, and leadership skills. Thus, the Interschool Best Speaker contest has being through a successful expedition for over five years, discovering young passion and uplifting their public speaking and leadership skills.
Moreover, with the fact that the Sri Lankan school community generally receives the opportunity to participate in public speaking contests after school years, it is commendable that the University of Kelaniya Gavel club is engaged in a sincere attempt to change this convention for the first time. ‘Unleash Yourself’ was first organized in 2013 as a school workshop series. In 2014 the project was expanded with the commencement of the first Inter School Best Speaker Contest. These contests were continuously held for nearly five years along with the workshop series conducted at various schools and even at children’s homes.
Inter School Best Speaker invites all the schools in Sri Lanka to participate for the contest. Just like the Inter University Best Speaker, the contest is a collaborative exploration initiated by both the club and the Career Guidance Unit to discover passionate speakers at school level and lend them a helping hand to enliven their future. This is yet another glorious event that resonates the legacy of the club, perceiving its dream to create a space to improve public speaking, manifest leaders, and nurture true friendship. Viva la GAVEL!
The Gavel Club of University of Kelaniya has gained much reputation by becoming the first ever Gavel Club in South Asia. The main intention of the Gavel Club is to help its members to improve their communication, language and leadership skills.
