My Speech
Purpose: to convince/ persuade my audience.
Topic: Why we need two day weekends.

You're crazy if you think coming to school every Saturday is OK! I've got other things to do. Kia Ora my name is Luke and I'm here today to convince you why we need 2 day weekends.
Firstly, I need to sleep in. If I don't sleep in I get tired. When I get tired I get grumpy, when I get grumpy it’s easy to wind me up. If someone wined me up I will do something dumb and dumb is just DUMB..So coming to school every Saturday will just end up being tired, grumpy, a bad day which all equals DUMB... That’s why I believe we need 2 day weekends.

Secondly, I need to sleep In. If I don’t sleep in on Saturday  I won’t do well in sport on Sunday. I play rugby league for the Whanau team. My mum and dad expect more from me. Coming to school every Saturday will make me tired for league on Sunday, thats why I believe we need 2 day weekend.

Thirdly, I need family time. Really 1 day with my family will not be enough. One day isn’t much and my family means more than anything else to me. You're crazy! I need 2 day weekend because if I come to school on Saturday most of my family time i'm at school... and thats not OK with me...That’s why 2 day weekend should be remain.     

In conclusion I've given you 3 good reasons why two day weekends should remain.
  • I need to sleep in
  • I won't do well in sports
  • I need family time
