The Concours d’art oratoire is a national French public speaking competition that takes place each spring across the country. Students present first at their school level, and then move up to compete at the provincial and national levels. Canadian Parents for French, Nova Scotia has been organizing and hosting the provincial competition for thirty-six years.
The provincial Concours d’art oratoire was held on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at Mount Saint Vincent University. Students from grades 5 to 12 presented a wide range of topics from ice cream to climate change. Students represented the many Regional Centres for Education in the province, as well as the Conseil scolaire Acadien provincial (CSAP) and the Canadian Association of Independent Schools (CAIS).
A massive congratulations to the students from the South Shore Region who participated in the competition and who brought home medals. Bravo et félicitations tout le monde!
