Forensics - Public Speaking

 Forensics at Our Lady of the Lake School is an interscholastic  public speaking club.  Our league is comprised of about ten  schools.  Forensics refers to competition in speech, debate, and  drama events.  Students in grades 5-8 are provided the  opportunity to use speaking, analytical, and critical thinking  skills.  These opportunities can improve poise, academic  achievement, and confidence.

 The students meet with the coaches once weekly to  practice forensics pieces. Judges evaluate the students before a  meet to determine the six competitors and two alternates to  represent Our Lady of the Lake School in the league meets.  The  four meet categories are: dramatic reading, declamation, drama,  and humor. 

 Our students have garnered many awards over the years, both  individually and as a team. Forensics can be great preparation for collegiate and professional careers.  It is also offered at the high school and college level.
