It is hard to believe that we have reached the middle of term 1. As always, the children are engaged and active in many areas across the school. Classes from Upper 1st have begun preparations for the upcoming Public Speaking Competition. This provides our students with a wonderful opportunity not only to research and write about a topic, but also to step up and grow in confidence. It certainly takes a good measure of courage to speak in front of others. The finals will be held on the 31st of March at school. Our Lower 1st children will have the opportunity to watch the older children so that they will know what to expect next year when it is their turn.
