Students in Grades 5 - 8 are encouraged to participate in a program that allows
them the opportunity to give a prepared speech before small audiences and a
judge. This allows them the unique experience to develop public speaking skills.
Opportunities are provided for these students to prepare with experienced and
qualified coaches a couple days a week. Some Bellarmine Speech practices
may occur after school from 3:15 to 3:45 p.m. on dates to be determined prior to each speech meet.
