Debate Competition 2021
SPEECH AND DEBATE TEAM
Saint Helen Catholic School conducts annual debate competition among 5th to 8th grade students every year. Speech and Debate covers public speaking (speech) and argumentation (debate). It aims at fostering public speaking on students. Students compete against fellow students in locally. The events range from fast-paced, academic debate, to quick-thinking impromptu events, to platform speeches advocating societal change, and theatrical interpretation events. During the competition, students participate and have the opportunity to win trophies. More importantly, students learn important life lessons about leadership, teamwork, time management, persistency, humility, and confidence. These life lessons are even more rewarding than trophies because they shine brighter and last longer.
2021 Middle School Winter Design Project
As we transitioned back classroom from remote learning for our students, our teachers have gotten more creative with their lessons. Ms. Robergena Germain got especially creative by encouraging the middle school students to use different objects at their disposal to design and create projects. It was amazing creative activities as middle students performed beyond expectations by using crafts to design and build farmhouses, railroads, bird houses, robots, soccer field, Church house, gardens, city, and their work were displayed at Cafeteria for the all the students.
