On Monday, April 18th, York House School hosted this years Independent School Association Public Speaking Competition.
Independent schools from Metro Vancouver and Vancouver Island brought over 200 students, student judges and teachers. Yorkies were writing, preparing and practicing speeches for months before the competition. Students competed for first, second or third place in their grades and a very high quality of speeches could be heard from every competition room in the school.
Congratulations to our York House medal winners:
Grade 4 2nd place winner: Kate N.
Grade 5 1st place winner: Kristen M.
Grade 6 2nd place winner: Jan L.
Additionally, the speeches from Yorkie’s garnered enough points to position York House School as the overall winner of the competition! Congratulations Yorkies!
The competition was a great success and could not have been put on without the amazing support of our teaching staff, our Grade 6 and 7 timer volunteers and the Senior School Ambassadors and volunteer judges. Thank you to everyone involved!
