Arrived at St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Separate School in Brampton this afternoon, to a very kind and warm reception by Ms. Quick, the school Principal. Before escorting us into the library, she asked us whether the library was suitable. Indeed, it was. A convenient wall mounted smart board was beautifully in place and alongside it, a trusty desktop computer. Its’ availability for my presentation made my set up a breeze.
When the grade five and six students started to arrive into the library, they were quiet and intrigued to hear my presentation. The attentive students were keenly inquisitive and had great questions following my public speaking presentation. I was very happy to answer their questions.
They each completed an Exit ticket. One of these read:
- Today I heard/saw… “a presentation about treating people as equals and being positive. ?”
- This made me think … “that I am lucky for my friends, family and teachers that are kind and loving. ?”
- Now, I wonder… “How can I be the best version of myself?”
Ms. Quick’s succinct summation to her students at the end of the question and answer period poignantly emphasized my presentation’s importance to all of them. I really appreciated it.
I am very pleased to have been invited by Ms. Quick as a public speaker to her school. I left St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Separate School this afternoon comfortably content that I had made a positive difference with the students to whom I had the pleasure to present to, as a public speaker today.
