York House students took top spots at this weekend’s Provincial Speech Championships in Vancouver. Saskia, Gr. 10, placed first in the Acting Category, and Rosa, Gr. 10, placed first for Persuasive Speaking and Debate, second for Acting and third overall in the tournament. Rosa will also be advancing to the National Competition in Winnipeg next February, which is the qualifier for the World Public Speaking & Debate Competition. Also competing were Isabelle, Gr. 11, Sarah, Gr. 10, and Catherine, Gr. 9. All the girls represented YHS very well, and should be congratulated on their positivity and sportsmanship!
Thank you to our coaches and chaperones Ms. Wong, Ms. Bosco and Ms. Higgins, and thank you to everyone involved in providing this great opportunity for our students!
