Year 5 & 6 Raise Your Voice Competition

Every year, St Dominic’s School and St John’s Primary School, Scarborough come together during Term 4 to compete in the ‘Raise Your Voice’ competition, which is a competition that provides students with an opportunity to express their views confidently, using appropriate speaking skills.  It also encourages students to research and compose a speech that shows a depth of understanding of the topic.
