Laurieton Public School students braved the wind and rain to travel to the Taree Speech and Drama Eisteddfod on Thursday 21st May. Almost the whole school performed in their Stage 1, 2 and 3 groups.
The Stage 1 students received 2nd placing in their section and they were praised for their ability to remember so well and to express their poems so clearly. They did a fabulous job of reciting the two poems in unison, especially for a group of 70 very young children.
Stage 2 also came 2nd, after entertaining the audience wonderfully with their two poems. Their excellent performance on stage was matched by their fabulously controlled entry and exit of the stage area.
Stage 3 came 1st in their section, reciting two complex poems which included verses written by themselves in adapting an existing poem. All groups showed excellent expression in their voices as well as their faces and their diction was impressively clear.
All involved with the school are very proud of their children's performance and their exemplary behaviour in difficult conditions.
