Many thanks to Ann Garvey for coming in to school today to facilitate some public speaking workshops for Primary 7 and Primary 6 pupils, who are busy preparing their entries for the 2019 St Mary’s Environmental Youth Speak competition. The children were delighted to receive some tips in the art of public speaking from Ann Garvey, who is an expert in her field.
Pupils have been enhancing their literacy skills through this Eco Schools activity. This project will also incorporate ICT, as the children will submit their work through their Google Classroom.
There is great excitement building now with just one week to go to the big event. The winner will then go forward to represent St Mary’s at the Newry, Mourne & Down DC Final later in the month.
