District Oratory Competition!

The annual Anglophone East District Oratory competition was held Wednesday night at Riverview High School. Students from district schools competed in the middle and high school division in two categories, spoken work poetry and public speaking.

Congratulations to the winning students: Lacey Geddes who attends Sunny Brae and Emma Etheridge, Riverview Middle, 2nd and 1st place middle school public speaking; Aaliyah Lahai, Moncton High and Tyler Thorne, Riverview High, 1st and 2nd place high school public speaking; and Jaelyna LeBlanc, Moncton High and Lauren Wilkins, Bernice MacNaughton High, 2nd and 1st place high school spoken word poetry.

The first and second place students advance to the provincial competition, Speak Out 2017, on May 26 at St. Thomas University. Students at the provincial competition will participate in workshops in spoken word poetry, debate and public speaking. The workshops will allow students to learn new techniques in their chosen area or develop their interests in other areas of oratory.
