It’s Academic Hawaii

It's-Academic-Hawaii

On April 13th, St. Joseph students John Lindenau, Johnathan Uhlmann, and Brianne Schlegelmilch participated in It’s Academic Hawaii, a statewide televised quiz competition hosted by K5 and Fisher Office Products. Our students received the invitation a week and a half before filming and did an admirable job of studying a wide variety of subjects as well as buzzer technique.

On the day of filming, our students were pitted against Aiea High School and Joseph Campbell High School of Ewa Beach. It was an up and down competition with St. Joseph taking the lead on several occasions, but ultimately losing when Aiea High School correctly answered the last two buzzer questions of the competition.

“I had a lot of fun, I definitely wish I could come back next year,” said senior John Lindenau. The episode of It’s Academic will air during their regular Fall season.

2016 Speech Fest Winners

St. Joseph Jr./Sr. High School students participated in Speech Fest, where 7th – 12th grade students worked very hard for weeks to memorize, practice, and finally perform their speeches. The finalist were tasked with presenting their speeches in front of guest judges, and the winners were announced at a special Speech Festival Assembly; the first place winners performed their winning speech. Congratulations to all of our students for their hard work and teachers for giving them the opportunity to learn the skill of public speaking. Mahalo to everyone that help put this together, and to our guest judges for their time.
