As part of its Religious Studies Month, the Department of Education’s Religious Studies Unit held a Religious Knowledge Competition on Nov.14.

Primary school students were instructed to develop a speech based on the topic: “Choose What Is Good.” The students quoted well-known Scriptures along with persuasive content to encourage the audience and their peers to do what is good.

Participants included: Kaitlyn Francis of Central Abaco Primary School; Branae Bain of Agape Christian School, Keiron Butler of St. Francis de Sales Catholic School; Tianna Smith of Amy Roberts Primary School; Taliyah Stuart of Fox Town Primary; Roscoe Thompson IV of Angels Academy; and Antonia Rolle, a student from J.A. Pinder Primary School.

Following the judges’ deliberations, Valerie Dean, chief judge, outlined the rules of the competition before calling the names of the top three winners. Unfortunately two students were disqualified for not meeting the minimum required speech time, which left the judges to choose from five contestants.

In third place was Keiron Butler, second place was Kaitlyn Francis, and the winner was Branae Bain.

The Championship Speech Competition is scheduled for Nov. 28 in New Providence, and Branae Bain will represent Abaco in the competition there.
