Paisley Public School Yearbook


Last year in late November the Public Speaking Contest was eld in the Paisley Town Hall. The contestants from Room III were as follows, -- Lois Linstead, Diane McKenzie, Sylvia Grant, Dan Gregg, and Donald Hagedorn.
The prize winners out of these were Dan Gregg who took third prize and Sylvia Grant who won second. We think all those pupils did exceptionally well. Perhaps one of these competitors will win first prize next year.

Donald Hagedorn


Our Christmas Concert was held in the Town Hall. Room III had many fine numbers. Grade VI put on a Cinderella Play with Lois Linstead as Cinderella; Beverley Parker as the PrinceMaxine Neilly and Florence Wrightson as the two sisters. Donna Hopper was the Fairy Godmother. Grade V put on folk dances and two coral reading numbers. Sylvia Grant sang a solo. Next year we hope to have an even better play.

Small Boy -- "It would likely say, "Pardon Me, Lady, but I'm a Maple."
