After a year of not joining the Primary Grades Forensic Conference competition because of no face-to-face instruction last school year, Oleai Elementary School returned this year to the first virtual monthly qualifying PGFC competition in September and, like their school mascot, the turtle, OES students slowly but surely placed in a variety of events in the competition.

Due to the COVID-19 situation, almost all of the events were pre-recorded video entries. The only live event for PGFC was Impromptu Speaking via Google Meet—only the competitors and judges can enter the live meeting.

PGFC competition encourages public and private school from kindergarten to fifth grade students to participate in and become proficient in the forensic performing arts: reading, public speaking, and interpretations.

The OES family thanks all its competitors for doing the best they can in accomplishing their goals. “Thank you to all the parents who helped in preparing their children at home as well as the teachers and judges for the support and help they have given in this competition,” the school said in a press statement.
