The school round of recitation competition
On Friday 15th March, the third school round of the recitation competition was held in the school hall. Three children from every class performed their poem/text in front of their classmates and friends from the school.
It is a tradition in Czech schools that pupils memorise a poem or story so the Czech department at Park Lane decided to do this every year as well. It is not just about remembering some text, but also about presenting in front of people, fighting with the stage-fright and trying to insert emotions.
It was a really hard decision to choose just two candidates from every category, who will compete with other participants from Czech schools next week in DDM Prague 6, but we are sure that we chose the right ones who will represent our school with pride, enthusiasm and dignity.
