The Gift of Public Speaking Starts Early and Naturally

Public Speaking rev2At St. Mary's School, our students have many opportunities for public speaking, even in the younger grades. Here is a student at our Wednesday, All School Mass, reading the Mass Intentions. She was one of eight, 2nd grade students who read at Mass. One of our recent graduates, now attending public high school was asked what she observed as any major differences between herself and her public-school counterparts. She said, “one of the differences she really noticed was her advanced ability in speaking expressively and extemporaneously.” Her mom attributes it to reading during Mass and other public speaking that the St. Mary's students do. Even at a young age, they are taught, "you have something to contribute."
