Eisteddfod juniors share tips

IPSWICH Junior Eisteddfod speech and drama competitors shared their tips for success after taking to the stage yesterday.

Brassall State School students Ebony Pickwell, Brodie Kemp, Kiya Verrill and Casey Baker placed first, second, third and highly commended respectively in the nine years character poem item.

"We've got poems all day today," Brodie said.

"I don't get nervous because I've been doing this since Prep, and our teacher helps us. There's nothing to be scared of really."

Casey said she was still apprehensive about performing.

"I was a bit nervous but I think it's because I'm new," Casey said.

"I won't be (nervous) when we perform at the principals' conference on Friday because we do that as a whole choir."
