On Thursday 30th May, a small team of our Year 5/6 boys travelled to Warrnambool to compete in the speech and drama sections of the Warrnambool Eisteddfod. Fagan Boschma, Daniel Bunge and Leigh Hilsdon all exceeded their own expectations bringing home first place in the three piece impromptu rendition, as well as two second places and one third place. Daniel received 1 honourable mention, Fagan received 3 honourable mentions and Leigh was given an encouragement award. The boys were fantastic in all sections and received positive feedback to help them develop their skills in the future. We are looking forward to many more public speaking competitions in the future.
Mount Gambier is next on the eisteddfod calendar between 31/7-2/8. If anyone is interested in competing, contact Leigh in Year 5.
