THE youth of Gladstone performed with pride and joy at the 44th Gladstone Eisteddfod on Tuesday.

School students from Gladstone Central State School and St John the Baptist College, and a combined schools group from the Gladstone Performing Arts Company, graced the stage with confidence and a bevy of talent during their performances for choral speaking.

They were impressive in their pronunciation and fluency in language and grammar.

Adjudicator Margaret Gallagher compared the performances to what she had seen in Hong Kong.

"They were both wonderful performances," she said.

St John the Baptist College students placed first in the category.

Wednesday is the last day of speech and drama. Starting at 8.30am on Thursday there will be mime, bible, prose, choral and more at the Gladstone Entertainment Centre.
