Downeyville Student Ontario Public Speaking Championship Contender

Heather Cadigan, Grade Two, Enjoys Making Audiences Laugh 

April 30, seven year-old, Heather Cadigan, competes in Orillia at the provincial primary championship against three other Ontario students.  While most people are uncomfortable with public speaking, grade two student ,Heather Cadigan, would like to make a career out of it some day.

The St. Luke’s Catholic School student won first place with her speech ‘If I were a principal for a day.’ on April 9th at the Royal Canadian Legion’s District public speaking competition in the primary division in Kingston. 

This was Heather’s fourth first place finish, having previously won the Omemee local branch competition, the zone, and area competitions in Woodville. 

In an interview with  Emily Johnson, co-op student for This Week; James, Heather’s father, revealed, “She shows no signs of nervousness, and never speaks of being nervous. Heather loves public speaking she counts down the days for every competition.”

Heather confided,“I made the audience laugh when I told them if I were the principal for the day I would make the teachers scrub the toilets.”

Heather’s experience as a performer in two Globus Theatre productions - Cinderella, and Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves at the Lakeview Arts Barn, has been a boon to her in increasing her comfort level in front of an audience.

Please join with us in extending our best wishes to Heather for her competition at the end of the month by leaving a comment below.
