We would like to thank all of the schools in the Pelham area as well as the Welland French Schools and Home School that sent students to our Effective Speaking contest on February 22. Thanks to all the contestants, your speeches were informative and entertaining. In our eyes you were all winners.

To all the parents thank you for encouraging your children to take part in a dying art. Speaking in public will be so important to them as they go through life. To the judges who took time out of their busy lives to judge the speeches.

Thank you for making it a successful evening.
