Three students from St. Patrick’s School in Kapuskasing will be heading to North Bay to compete in a public speaking competition.

It’s all part of the event’s final provincial competition to be held in London, Ontario next month.

Jared Duncan, Macy Piche and Carlee Weidhaas took first place in each division earlier this month.

The school’s principal, Gretchen Morgan, says it takes a lot for the students to get up there and speak confidently in front of a crowd.

Morgan says it isn’t the first time students from St. Pat’s have made a run at provincials.
