Public Speaking Competition
Braemar’s language curriculum is based on the understanding that literacy is vital to responsible and productive citizenship. Oral communication skills are enriched through a few key opportunities, including our formal Public Speaking competitions.
Each year, our students from Grades 2-8 participate in Public Speaking. Featured in the photo are students from Grades 2-8 who were chosen to represent their class and present their story (Grades 2-3) or speech to the entire school in the gym. Special thank you to our guest judges Sharon Brooks (left), Executive Director of Kids Can Fly; Jan Youngman, Chair of the Family Literacy Committee of Brant; and Al Spaxman (right), retired teacher and long-time music volunteer at Braemar.
The top two students from the Junior and Intermediate levels then went on to represent Braemar House School at the Dunsdon Legion Public Speaking Competition on March 5. At the Legion Competition, all our students did very well and we received two second place medals.
