Today we spent the morning listening to speeches from students in Gr. 4 to 8 and were very proud of our classmates who both demonstrated very strong speaking skills. During a follow up discussion and writing task, many students recognized the quality of presentations and what it must be like to be in the contestants’ shoes. They also mentioned the difficult task it must be for judges to select one junior winner and one intermediate winner. In the end, a decision was announced at the end of the day, and we’re happy to say the junior winner is one of our very own classmates who will now move on to represent the school at the next level of competition in April. Congratulations!!
And now that we are good and inspired, the rest of the class has booked a day to present their own speech.
