On Monday, April 25th, 13 Lower Mainland ISABC schools came together to support grade 4 and 5 public speakers compete at the 2016 ISABC Public Speaking Competition at St. John’s School. There was an exciting and impressive variety of speeches on two topics: grade 4 speakers inquired and discussed how everything on earth is connected, and grade 5 speakers explored the idea that health is wealth. It was a fun and interesting day, and judges, teachers, parents and competitors alike, commented on how impressive and powerful the speeches were.
Congratulations to all of the competitors and thank you to all of the teachers, parents and students for participating!
