Carolyn McKenzie ATCL LTCL Dip ASCA Hon
My experience has spanned four decades of teaching, examining and adjudicating speech, drama and oral communication, and has involved various aspects such as choral speech, public speaking, debating, play production, drama workshops, examination and eisteddfod preparation.
Presently I am teaching Speech and Drama at Arndell Anglican College, Oakville.
Adjudicating competitions and festivals and examining for the Australian Speech Communication Assn. (ASCA) has taken me to all of the eastern states of Australia and New Zealand.
My understanding of eisteddfod procedure is extensive as I have served on the executive of several committees including Hawkesbury City Eisteddfod and the Australian Speech Communication Association.
I believe that the value of eisteddfod participation is not in winning the competition but in the confidence and experience that students gain from the preparation and performance and from listening and learning from others.
