St. Veronica School

Speech Is the Voice of the Heart






“Speech is the voice of the heart”

The St. Veronica School Speech Ambassadors are certainly astounding themselves and others!  Twenty-eight 7th and 8th graders made up this year's Speech Team and they have dedicated themselves to hours of practice and rehearsal in order to perfect their speeches.  They are proving that outstanding oratory skills are possible with hard work, enthusiasm, and commitment.

The team entertained all classes here at school on January 19 and January 20; they traveled to five area Catholic grade schools to present their speeches on January 23, 24, & 25.  They also performed for the residents at the New England Club!  At the annual Parents Night, each team member received a commemorative plaque plus a team shirt.  These amazing students are now part of the proud tradition of the St. Veronica School Speech Ambassadors which was begun in 1984 by Sister Teresa Mitchell.  Congratulations to all!
