It was memorable competition for students at Greentree School.

Mrs. Heidi Nelson's Grade 4A class travelled to Edmonton to compete in a provincial Choral Speech competition.

"Our kids got second place and they were the youngest contestants in the category, so we were very excited about that," stated Mrs. Nelson.

"We performed in the McDougald United Church downtown Edmonton and it's a beautiful historic building, so it was a great experience for everyone," she added.

Since they had some free time, the class travelled to a few curricular appropriate tourist spots.

"We also went to Fort Edmonton Park and Muttart Conservatory, so we did a lot of fun curricular activities as well. It was a great trip for all of us," outlined Mrs. Nelson.

For the past few months, the Grade 4 class had been fundraising intensely to be able to raise enough money to travel to Edmonton. Thanks to our community, the class could go.

"I just want to say how thankful we are for everybody who came out to support us in our fundraising and helping us out. The kids were so excited to go and we're just very thankful for our community."
