White River Primary’s annual public speaking competition for the Grade 1-3 pupils took place on Wednesday, 25 July 2018. We had 41 pupils taking part in the speaking contest amongst which werea number of Afrikaans speaking pupils. It made us, as the junior phase teachers proud to have heard these children delivering their speeches. They spoke with confidence and enthusiasm. We want to thank the parents for their contribution in helping their children prepare for these speeches. Mrs Alison Emery, Head of Culture at Upland’s Prep was the head adjudicator and gave good pointers and comments to the pupils. We always like to show off with our pupils and therefor always invite an outside adjudicator to make sure that our standard of speeches remains high!

ENGELSE REDENAARS VIR GRAAD 1-3

Laerskool Witrivier se jaarlikse redenaars vir graad 1-3 het op Woensdag 25 Julie 2018 plaasgevind. Een en veertig van ons leerders, waarvan daar heelwat Afrikaanse leerders was, het meegeding. Ons as junior onderwysers was baie trots om al hierdie kinders so te hoor praat. Almal het met selfvertroue en entoesiasme hulle praatjies gelewer. Mev Alison Emery, Uplands laerskool se Kuns en Kultuur departementshoof, het baie goeie raad en opmerkings aan die leerders gegee. Ons hou daarvan om beoordelaars van buite te nooi, sodat ons kan spog oor ons leerders. Dit noodsaak ons om ‘n hoë standard te handhaaf. Baie dankie aan Juffrou Karen Wolters, en Marié Taylor wat ook as beoordelaars opgetree het, asook die Junior department se Engelse afdeling wat verseker het dat die geleentheid ‘n sukses was.
