Speech Arts

Each spring communities across Manitoba and Canada host an arts festival where students and adults gather to showcase their progress and abilities in various disciplines such as piano, singing and speech arts. 
Prairie Sounds Festival is held in Portage la Prairie each April and usually students from four different colonies participate: Baker, Elm River, Fairholme and Good Hope.
Here at Brennan School, enroll all of our kindergarten to grade 8 students in speech arts.  For weeks they work on reading,  memorizing, then presenting their poems with clarity, good expression and poise.  Of course, participating in this project improves their articulation and oral language skills.  Furthermore, they develop skills in stage presence and confidence.
This year three Brennan students received awards: Jenna Waldner in kindergarten, her sister Ava waldner in grade 2 and Marcus Hofer in grade 8.

And the winners are...

At the final concert, all award winners present their pieces in front of a large and attentive audience.
