Emily wrote -  Mrs Grace Stein has been a teacher of speech and oral communication to students at schools throughout the Henty district for more than 20 years. Her students sit exams conducted by the Australia speech communications association and many of her students have gained certificates and diplomas. Many students have also tested their new skill competitively at eisteddfods. Mrs Stein passes on her love of the written and spoken word to all her students and all benefit from her dedication and commitment. Mrs Stein’s lessons have helped many hundreds of student s gain confidence in public speaking and to prepare and make ordered and articulate oral presentations. Through drama, prose, poetry, scripts and stories Mrs Stein’s students also enjoy opportunities to exercise their imaginations whilst engaging with literature and language.
On Tuesday May 25 the regional winner for the inaugural Riverina Regional Library Reading Cultural Award was announced. Sharon Smith from Cootamundra was chosen from the local winners.
