Congratulations to Trinity Millar (Grade 5) and Charlie Tweedale (Grade 6) for both receiving awards for their outstanding efforts.
- On Tuesday 20th October Trinity Millar, in the senior school, was presented with an honourable mention for the Casey Cardinia Short Story and Poetry competition. Many students throughout the Casey-Cardinia region entered this competition and the judges commented on the high standard of the entries. Congratulations to Trinity on her fine effort.
On Tuesday 27th October schools in our area competed in the Pakenham Rotary Club Public Speaking competition. Representing St James was Charlie Tweedale. Charlie presented a speech about the things in life that really matter. Charlie told the audience that money was not the most valuable thing, but family is much more important.
Charlie's speech was very well presented. He was clear in his presentation and he obviously felt strongly about the content that he was presenting because he spoke with a lot of passion. Charlie was able to bring a lot of personal experience into his speech and he touched a lot on members of the audience with his delivery.
At the end of the evening, Charlie was presented with the Encouragement Award for the night. He was given a cheque and a plaque. Congratulations to Charlie on his fantastic efforts in the preparation and presentation of his speech.
