Divisional Declamation 2019 -- Peace River School Division students learn valuable public speaking skills
On Wednesday, May 15, 2019, EE Oliver Elementary School (EEO) hosted Divisional Declamation where several grades one to six students from five schools displayed their public speaking skills.
Students from Menno Simons Community School, Worsley Central School, Hines Creek Composite School, EE Oliver Elementary School and St. Thomas More participated in the divisional event.
The following PRSD winners will have their names inscribed on a plaque and will be proudly displayed in their schools:
Kenzi Kamphuis, Grade 2 student from Worsley Central School with “Last night I Dreamed of Chickens”
Stephanie Grove, Grade 3 student from Hines Creek Composite with “Spaghetti! Spaghetti!”
Thiery Robertson, Grade 4 student from EE Oliver with “I Wish My Father Wouldn’t Try To Fix Things Anymore”
The Divisional Declamation judging panel included Gord MacLeod - Mayor of Fairview, Paul Letkeman and Joan Smith - PRSD Educators, Robyn Robertson - PRSD Board Trustee, Marg McCuaig-Boyd - former MLA and Tony Shmyruk - Welding Instructor at GPRC Fairview Campus.
Earlier this spring, each school held a declamation contest where all students had the opportunity to participate in and practice their public speaking skills. The top speakers for each grade level were selected by a panel of judges to advance to the Divisional Declamation. PRSD wishes to congratulate all of the students for their participation in both the school-based and the Divisional Declamation.
Thank you to EE Oliver School for holding the event at your school, EEO Vice Principal Evelyn Krol for being the Master of Ceremonies, Coralee Ingram-Coghill, Jessica Whelan, Lexie Lazorko and Savanna Seaton for organizing, the judges, volunteers and community members for your attendance, involvement, time and support.
