St. Andrew's Society of the River Plate - Verse Competition
Several St. Andrew's Punta Chica pupils participated in the St. Andrew's Society of the River Plate Verse Competition.

The Society is a non-profit organization founded in 1888 to promote an interest in Scottish culture and traditions, as well as friendship between the people of Argentina and Scotland.  The Society keeps alive Scottish culture and traditions by fostering a sense of Scottish roots and a common identity within a Scottish-Argentine community, by creating opportunities for the practice of Scottish music, son, dance and other activities.

 

In the Verse Competiton Preliminaries held on August 27th they all recited their appointed poems.

 

Mia, Olivia , Agustín , Emma and Tati were chosen to recite their poems again in the Final sessions held on September 10th - and they won medals and cups!

 

This is what they told us afterwards:

"-Me gustó recitar el poema

 -me gustó dejar todo en el escenario

 -tenía mucha verguenza

 -me encantó que mis abuelos pudieran ir

 -me emocioné cuando el públivco me aplaudió

 -Todos me aplaudieron muy fuerte...como si fuera una    estrella

-lo malo es que de los nervios tenes miedo de confurdirte

-mi hermanita estaba muy nerviosa y no quería participar. Al final lo hizo y cuando mi papá la vio en el escenario se emcionó tanto que se puso a llorar

-tenés nervios, estás sola en el escenario, sin micrófono y tenés que decirlo fuerte y sin gritar

 

The children themselves had these recommendations for all future participants:

 

-te divertís

-conocés amigos nuevos

-sentís que por lo menos lo intestaste aunque no ganes nada

-lo importante es que pudiste hacerlo

-voy a participar todos los años !
