NORTH SHORE PRIMARY SPEECH ARTS COMPETITION

Dear parents,

A few reminders:
  • The competition takes place at St. Pius X School (1150 Mount Seymour Road)
  • Parents are responsible for driving their children to and from the competition.
  • Please arrive 15 minutes before your child’s start time.
  • Children should be dressed in full uniform and arrive well-groomed (sweaters, shiny shoes and tidy hair).
  • St. Pius would appreciate nonperishable food donations for the Food Bank. 

There will be a box labeled Holy Trinity containing the original poetry books if your child chose a poem from the school library. There will not be a teacher from our school present everyday. You are responsible for finding your child’s book/poem for your child to present to the adjudicator. Please return the book to the box after your child’s performance, as other children may need this book. Every student’s poem should be clearly marked.

You must bring the original book to the competition if your child’s poem is from an outside source. Photocopies will not be accepted.

Schedule:
  • Monday, January 23  - Kindergarten
  • Tuesday, January 24  - Grade 1
  • Wednesday, January 25 - Grade 1 and 2 Poems and Bible Readings
  • Thursday, January 26 - Grade 2 Poems and Grade 3
  • Friday, January 27 - Grade 3 Poems, Bible Readings and Speeches

The children attend the competition throughout the day. Each student is given a session/time to recite his/her poem. Each session lasts about 45 minutes. At the end of each performance, the students in Grades 1, 2, and 3 will receive a certificate that reflects their performance (gold, silver and bronze). All kindergarten students receive participation certificates, as this will be their first time participating.

Photography and videotaping will be allowed as long as it is discreet.

We would also like to remind you that toddlers are strongly discouraged from attending the festival. If this is absolutely not possible, it is crucial that non-school aged children be able to remain quiet for up to half an hour.

Thank you for your co-operation. Good luck to all the participants and remember to have fun!

Sincerely,

Mrs. Robinson
Mrs. Townsend

PLEASE FIND YOUR CHILD'S TIME IN THE FILE LABELLED "PRIMARY SPEECH ARTS SCHEDULE"
