    • One student is chosen from the upper primary to represent the school in this annual competition.
    • Upper primary ranges from Years 4 - 6
    • One must be able to express herself brilliantly in order to captivate the attention of the judges and enabling them to relate to the story told.
    • Proper and CORRECT English must be used (pronounciation, inunciation, grammar, etc..)
    • So parents, if you think your child has got what it takes to bring her audience along in a journey of fairy tales and adventures, kindly PROVE it to us. Hehe.
    • Farah Amani bt Adbul Razak is a former student of SKCBN1 who was the only participant to walk away with both national level English Story Telling Champion and Johan Bercerita Bahasa Melayu. It's time to repeat history my friends!
  • Public Speaking
    • Preliminary Round - March 2008
    • State Level Finals - 10th May 2008

    • One student is chosen from the upper primary to represent the school in this annual competition.
    • Upper primary ranges from Years 4 - 6
    • Public Speaking is divided into two compulsory presentations; prepared speech and impromptu speech.
    • Prepared speech: participants are to prepare a speech on a certain topic and elaborate on it.
      • For example: Chocolate Is Good For You.
      • The participant has to present facts and good reasoning in order to defend and elaborate on her topic.
    • Impromptu speech: participants are given a topic on the spot and are given some time to brainstorm on the topic. They then have to present their speech.
      • For example: topic given - HEROES.
      • The participant brainstorms on what to say about the topic HEROES. It's very subjective so one can talk about superheroes, their parents, teachers, etc...

    • National Level - 14th-16th October 2008, Putrajaya

    • A conductor is chosen among the team members to lead and guide the others to recite the memorized text in unison.
    • Every year schools from all over Malaysia will look forward to this annual competition, practicing their hearts out just to land themselves in National Level.
    • SKCBN1 has been the defending state champion in this competition for 7 consecutive years and 2 years national choral speaking champion.
    • Our former conductor, Aishah Ahmed bt Motawh, was given the National Level Best Conductor Award for 3 consecutive years.
