Great communicators

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

Students at Balaclava put their money where their mouth is recently, at the school's annual Oral Communications Festival. With a strong tradition of public speaking, the kids made the judges' job a tough one, but (above, back row) retired teacher Barbara Taylor, retired principal Richard Dawson and Hope Kamin, copy editor for the Toronto Star, were up to the challenge. Balaclava's own Mrs. Treumuth chaired the event, while Mrs. Bamsay was questioner. When the dust settled in the Junior division, last year's Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board champ Colin Hardy (right) defended his title, taking first. Kelly Martin (left) earned second place and Jocelyn Cameron was third. Competition was also tight in the Intermediate division, with Evelyn Pyper placing first followed by Hilary Redrup in second and Joy MacDonald in third.
