I am beyond proud of the hard work we’ve done and can’t wait to see where we go! #speechanddebate
Tournament Roundup! This week we had our first Speech tournament, League 1C 👏👏👏 (and also our first thunderstorm in a really long time!! That was neat)
Actually it’s a good thing it rained because our novice team has been on FIRE lately ;^) Rose Bychowski placed second in OI, and Priscilla Avila and Halle Schaffer both placed FIRST IN THEIR EVENTS (OI and DI respectively) CAN I GET A WITNESS 👀👀👀🙌🙌🙌 (Think about it guys, this is their first speech tournament and they already placed first in the event thats;;;powerful)
Thanks gang for being so awesome, and also Lily for sacrificing her weekends for tournaments like these 🙏🙏bless u
Yest #shravankuttyma participated in the Inter school Speech and Debate competition for the first time.There were various categories and he attempted 2 of them and he came in the 5th place in one of them.
Ok,Let me tell you why I felt so happy and proud.
Yest was a long day for him he went at 6.45 am and came back at 7.30 PM.Aftercoming home he immediately refreshed,had dinner and started prepping for something.When I asked him to take rest he was like " Amma,the next contest is coming up in the month of Nov,and I really want to work on the areas of improvement and do better in the next contest,so I'm gonna prepare from right now "
That's the wonderful attitude and learning isn't it !! Instead of worrying about something that did not go well this time,Apply all the learning and with the never give up attitude we can be more confident in the next time.I'm so happy that shravan has developed this attitude at the very young age and this will help him to grow in every single thing he try in his life.I learn everyday from #our#shravankuttyma !!
My first MUN conference thank you so much everyone, I had a lot of fun and learned a lot, looking forward to my future conferences... the delegate of Pakistan yields the floor #munot2018 #❤️ #speechanddebate
