Declamation is an annual speaking competition, sponsored by the Diocese of Worcester, in which students in grades 6,7, and 8 compete in several categories including poetry reading, prose reading, children’s liter
ature, original oratory, and more. Declamation is a chance for students to show off their speaking skills, represent St. Mary School in competition with other schools in the Diocese, and maybe even win a trophy! Students practice during the year, and come together at St. Peter Marian High School on a Saturday in the spring for a Declamation Festival. This year all the 7th and 8th grade students who competed returned with trophies!
