Grade 7 Public Speaking Challenge 2020

The 2020 Grade 7 Public Speaking Challenge took place on March 11. Since it began in 1983, students have had the opportunity to develop confidence and pursue excellence in public speaking.

We’d like to acknowledge each student who presented in their schools. It takes courage to stand up and speak in front of your peers.

Thank you to the many people who made this happen, including our judges at the finals (pictured above L to R), Trustees Bill Brassington and Peter Cech, Augustus Cruickshank from the Burnaby Rotary Club, and Dave Carter, who founded the Public Speaking Challenge in our schools.

Thank you also to the Burnaby Now for their continued support of this annual event. See our sponsored ad in the March 19 edition (page 24-25).
