With the nearing of spring comes the Speech Arts season. As with last year there will be two components to
our school speech arts program – one in class and the other an extra curricular club.

This extra curricular club is a great opportunity for those students who are looking for a challenge and to
advance their public speaking skills. Participants of the club will be asked to attend coaching sessions during
lunch time, where they will practice with their peers and receive helpful hints from our coaches who will
address areas such as posture, eye-contact, pace and volume. Each participant will then ‘perform’ their
piece for the coaches who will select a group of students to compete at the regional level with other students
from our Catholic school system. If your child is interested please fill out the form attached to this
newsletter and return it to his/her classroom teacher.

Primary coaching sessions will be Wednesday, Thursday and Friday lunch hours.
Intermediate coaching session will be Monday and Thursday lunch hours.
