It is in the conference room of the CCISM that our twenty college students were invited on Wednesday April 21, as well as their parents, classmates, teachers and principal without forgetting some personalities such as the director of the tourist office. de Saint-Martin, the vice-rector of Saint-Barthélemy and Saint-Martin. The demonstrations of a round table debate, of the content of a standardized speech punctuated a program specific to toastmasters where the students had to take on various roles such as that of chairman of the session, secretary, time keeper or even critic. The pride of each other was visible or audible and we have as proof the concluding words of Michel Sanz, vice-rector, head of the national education service of Saint-Barthélemy and Saint-Martin: "Au vu from what our young college students have just demonstrated to us, we should think about organizing a public speaking competition.
