    Yarrawonga Junior Public Speaking

    Yarrawonga Lions Junior Public Speaking Competition was held on Sunday 12th August, 2018 at the Lions Clubroom at the Yarrawonga Showgrounds.

    Family, friends and supporters gathered for an entertaining and enlightening program of prepared and impromptu speeches from the 12 participants.

    This year participants were from Sacred Heart Primary School, Yarrawonga College P-12 and Mulwala Public School.

    Unfortunately one of our students was not able to attend in person but she was adamant that she wished to participate so with the help of the Royal Children's Hospital and modern technology a YouTube video was presented.

    Although she did not win a place in the competition she did win a place in our hearts. We all wish her well in her recovery.
