After a month of preparation, the day had arrived. Students, grades 4-6 had meticulously planned and delivered their speeches. Semi-finalists had competed against their peers and finalists were chosen to represent their grade. Today was the day the finalists would compete for the coveted title of Public Speaking Champion. It must not be overlooked, the standard of public speaking across grades 4 through 6 is exceptional. Their topics well thought out, the introductions very catchy and their delivery simply impressive. A huge congratulations to all participants on a job well done.
The following is a brief clip of each competitor. My apologies to Jenna as I have somehow lost the audio. Also included is Madeleine’s performance which won her the talent show. A truly impressive talent!
On Thursday, June 6th Galaxy Gavin stopped by the grade 6 classrooms to conduct an electricity workshop. The students thoroughly enjoyed learning and participating in hands activities. Some of the concepts included constructing parallel and series circuits, solar power, the power of the potato, static vs. current electricity and lastly the basics of molecules and atoms. Thanks to Hi-Touch Hi-Tech for such a great learning experience.
