Toastmasters for Children

Got a call from Shirley Lau who was searching the web for toastmasters clubs in Singapore. Called my handphone to enquire about toastmasters training for her Sec 1 daughter.

Interested if we were to run the “classes” in June. She’s staying in Toa Payoh.

Those who are interested in joining forces with Chai Tun and me to organise this, please let me know. If June is not possible, then Dec (school holidays).

We’re going to be “BUSY” but I’m so happy!!

Update 3 Jun 2013

For a list of Gavel Club in Singapore, go to public speaking for the teens

For enquiries on public speaking courses, workshops for children in Singapore, go to Contact public speaking for children

    My dream is taking shape and soon it will be a reality!

    Started sowing the seed back in 2002. Started The Education Circle and did some student programmes and today, I am still it on part-time basis despite my current full-time work commitment. Also started doing the same thing through the senior citizen route; they are considering. Now, I also see some toastmasters coming together to be fee-paid Speakers! It’s a dream coming true.

    It is my dream to be able to capitalise on our communication and networking skills to make difference in others’ lives, be them senior citizens or students or working professionals.

    Doing all this, also help myself to be in the fore-front of communication technologies!

    Hi Samantha,

    Not sure if this email gets to you as well. I am be contacted at email

    Toastmasters’ Clubs are meant for 18 years old and above. However, we can organise a special programme for children if there is enough participants. Some of our members have in the past organised programmes for senior citizens and students.

    May be you can tell us roughly what you wish to accomplish for your kid.

    Forming a Gavel Club for children below 18 years of age is UNLIKE forming the RSVP Gavel Club. A children’s Gavel Club has to be managed just like an Adult Club, with adults holding the Executive Committee appointments. It CANNOT be left to the kids to manage a club, as there are too many responsibilities.

    I think the EXCO should tread carefully on this “bed of egg shells”. Unless the EXCO has the energy and resources to manage a ‘baby club’, with dual responsibilities, consider this very carefully.

    I suggest that we can recommend the parents to the schools which have ‘Gavel’ Clubs within the schools/institutions.

    Hi Leng Leng,

    I’d sent you a list of Gavel Clubs in Singapore as Toastmasters Club is not for children.

    Though the list is rather old, we hope it helps and perhaps some day, we would be able to compile an updated list and post it on web to benefit all parents.

    Thank you so much for your enquiry and we all at Toa Payoh Central CC Toastmasters Club hope you would be able to find a suitable Gavel Club that would heip your children in public speaking.

    hi there fantastic little journal ya got right here 🙂 I apply the very same template on my own yet unfortunately for what ever reason it appears to stream easier on yours although this blog contains significantly more material. Are you using any kind of plug ins or widgets which quicken it up? Do you think you might be able to write about the widgets so that I would be able to use them in my personal websites so twilight eclipse followers could watch twilight eclipse online trailers and films faster I’d personally always be pleased – kudos in advance 🙂

    I’m keen to get my 10-year-old involved with a children’s Toastmaster or Gavel Club, if this is relevant.

    I can get together with parents keen to hold training sessions. I have facilities suitable to hold such an event for about 14-15 kids at one go with TV or projection, etc. Please connect with me, hp 91093676, if you are an interested parent or can provide assistance to get something going. We can make thi monthly or quarterly gathering. Kids can do swimming thereafter or we get food for them to build friendships.
