Wednesday 14th of August saw Bianca (Year Four), Puru (Year Five) and Ranjeev (Year Six) attend heats for the 2019 Speak Awards in Scarborough. Competing against public, independent and private schools from across the state, Harrisdale PS were competitively represented by our three students. The quality of all of the speeches was exceptionally high, with the judges commenting how this made their selection decisions extremely challenging. We are proud of each of our three representatives, and our further congratulations are extended to Puru for making it through to the preliminary finals to be held later this month!
