Wakayama City English Recitation Contest – 2019

Hello everyone,

This past Saturday, two third-grade junior high school students participated in the 47th Wakayama City English Recitation Contest. Ms. Suyama recited Malala Yousafzai’s famous UN speech about putting education first. Ms. Takeda recited a story called “Fly Away Home”, about a girl leading a flock of geese south for the winter.

Both students practiced hard, so I was happy to see Ms. Takeda get second place in the contest! Ms. Suyama also did well, and was awarded a special prize from the Wakayama Lion’s Club.

Congratulations both of you! First and Second grade students, do your best for next year!
