Judges' Comments : "It has been an absolute pleasure to judge this digital story-telling competition. Every story exhibited the passion and motivation that our students have in story-telling. I am so impressed with their high standard of performance, especially with most of them using their strong and confident voices as they skilfully presented their stories with enthusiasm. Generally, they maintained good volume of voice and had accurate articulation and pronunciation in their delivery. Most the stories were well-narrated and the students seemed to be enjoying the experience as they played the different characters in the story, trying to use voice, sound and facial expression creatively. Apart from a few minor issues in their speaking skills, they have achieved success in entertaining us with their performances. Every team is a winner and our performers can only get better."
- Mrs Jennifer Lui

"On the whole, the P3s did a commendable job with most, if not all, in the accomplished band and with some at exemplary level for the different aspects of the delivery.

Students were largely accurate in their pronunciation and fluent. There were some slips (fussing, ranch, gobble) and this may be due to some difficulties with some vowel sounds (it, eat, pudding) and the 'th' digraph (another, Father).

Students delivered their lines using good emphasis to bring their characters to life and to enhance their stories. There were also creative elements added with simple add-ons of trotting sounds and voiced bleating as well as the use of facial expressions (eyes widened, eyes rolling)."
- Mr Charles Peters

"1.Fluency and Pronunciation:
a.Stay alert to the balance between pronunciation and pace.
b.To keep your audience rapt as they listen, vary your pace throughout the story but keep the pauses between readers to a minimum for greater fluency.
c.Make sure that volume output is the same for all readers. It may be best to record each speaker at the same place.
d.Sometimes, all it takes to be fluent is practice. For example, for those groups that presented “Billy Goats Gruff” practice saying “Billy Goats Gruff” as one phrase.

a.Be dramatic in your facial expression and it will reveal itself in your voice.
b.Pay attention to how your character is feeling before you read the lines.
c.Sometimes, use the pause to create expression.

3.Creativity: a.Onomatopoeia – instead of saying “crunch” make the sound.

Thank you so much for reading your stories. We so enjoyed them all."
- Dr Jo-Ann Shek

"Students are commendable in trying to vary the tones in the dialogue to convey nuances of meanings, to show different feelings with regard to different junctures in the stories.

Students need to be aware of pausing whenever there is punctuation (e.g. full-stops, commas).

Students are very proficient in their pronunciation."
– Ms Ethel Chong

"I thought they were all excellent. For their age and experience, they have clearly enjoyed making these videos. Great fun!

The key points would be:
Pronunciation: 'th' – always a common one – the usual ones (tree instead of three), but also medial 'th' – another – becoming anudder etc – word endings were another – t and d missing. But I must stress, these are MINOR things – overall, the pronunciation was outstanding.

Delivery – great fun with characters like the pirates and trolls – obviously they are the fun ones. But the narrators have the trickier job. To be clear, concise and move the stories forward – not easy. The best were those that varied their PACE – speeding up to convey excitement, slowing down to build suspense etc. That comes with experience, of course.

Overall, these performances were polished, well spoken, expressive and most importantly FUN. It’s vital at this age that students ENJOY public speaking and storytelling. They all clearly do. Wonderful."
– Mr Neil Humphreys
