THE 2017 Port Macquarie Speech and Drama Eisteddfod was contested at the Glasshouse from Friday to Sunday, with some of the best students in the Hastings wowing the crowd.
In it’s 38th year, the eisteddfod featured students from preschool to high school competing in a variety of sections including poetry, improvisations, characterisations, public speaking and speech choirs.
Feedback came from the accredited adjudicators Tim Maddren and Amy Hume.
Students where thrilled to be in the presence of such esteemed judges, and where happy to perform in front of their proud parents.
“I think my grandma is here as well as my mum and dad,” said dramatic dialogue student Sarah.
“It was good to see so many people in the crowd giving us a big round of applause. I had a good time performing but I was a little bit nervous.”
