On February 28th, NSA took part in Montreal’s Speak Up poetry competition for the very first time. Our students were up against over 25 very talented individuals from 4 schools, and still managed to take home the gold medals in both the individual and group categories. What an outstanding success for NSA, especially given that many of the competitors were more experienced than our students. A huge congratulations to our winners, Mary Zoi, Shan-Li, Audrey, and Riwa, as well as Yasmine and Danica for competing. You are all winners and have made the school so proud. A big thank you to Ms. Raskin for organizing the school’s involvement in the competition and Ms. Ranallo for supporting participation amongst her classes.
