Students use the break to fin­ish their speeches

Southern Riverina news - - NEWS - Judy Ryan

Students in Years 3 to 6 at both schools will spend some of the hol­i­days pre­par­ing for the Lions Club Ju­nior Pub­lic Speak­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

The pre­lim­i­nary judg­ing will be held in Term 3 on Wed­nes­day, July 25, with fi­nal judg­ing to be held at the July 30 Lions Club meet­ing.

The sub­ject for Year 3/4 is ‘My Favourite Place’. Year 5/6 speak­ers have to pre­tend that they are a travel guide and need to look care­fully around their town and find at­trac­tions which they can then ‘sell’ to prospec­tive vis­i­tors to the town.

After a rel­a­tively short time in hospi­tal after a fall, Les­lie Ears­man has re­turned home a bit bruised, but not beaten.

Les­lie has been sup­ported through­out her treat­ment and re­cov­ery by fam­ily, friends, and of course the won­der­ful doc­tors and nurs­ing staff — both in Al­bury and Jer­ilde- rie — for which she is ex­tremely grate­ful.

We wish her a speedy and un­event­ful re­cov­ery.

Students and teach­ers at St Joseph’s were sad to say farewell to vis­it­ing Amer­i­can stu­dent Vivi­enne Ni­chols, who re­turned to Cal­i­for­nia with her mother and brother on Sun­day.

Vivi­enne has had a won­der­ful time set­tling into life in a much smaller school than the one she at­tends in the States, and will miss the friends she has made.

The St Joseph’s kids will miss Vivi­enne and her ac­cent, and no doubt Bar­bara and John will miss their daugh­ter and grand­chil­dren.
