What a great contest we had on Wednesday, April 17! Many thanks to Philemon Wright High School who graciously hosted the 2019 Concours d’art oratoire. There were many interesting and well-prepared speeches.
After the presentations, the judges, Mme. Bourdy, Mme. Dompierre, Mme. Forget, Mme. Piercy, M. Stancescu and Mme. Turcotte had the difficult task of picking the top ranking speakers for each category. After meeting and discussing, the judges concluded the following
|Grades 7 & 8||Grades 9 & 10||Grade 11|
|Core||Sophia Paniagua Galindo||n/a||Sawyer McCulloch|
|Enriched||Daila Lukss||Rachel Becher||Lucy Backstrom|
|Enriched Plus||Sasha Ayers-Itabashi||n/a||Jessica Richardson|
|Immersion||Grace Holmes||Damian Levac||Tyler Woodburn|
|Francophone||Furaha-Safi Karubara||n/a||Amanda Peel|
Well done to all the participants! The audience was captivated by the speeches and impressed by the readiness of the participants.
Thank you to all of the teachers and special thanks to Mme. Béchard and Virginia Lavigne, who coordinated the competition. Without their continued support, we would never be able to put on events like these.
