Declamation 
The Declamation Club is an enrichment activity that gives students the opportunity to participate in public speaking. Along with the teacher, students select a famous speech and practice giving the speech in front of an audience. St. Anthony students then compete with other students in the Diocese.

There are also "oral readings" where memorization is not required. This activity is open to students in grades 5 through 8.
