Enrichment Program

Speech and Drama

Speech and Drama opens the world of communication and the power of the spoken word when used effectively and appropriately.

Each child is encouraged and supported to be confident in his or her expression of the spoken word. We see each child as unique. Our classes allow them to explore, develop, experience and learn, and, at the same time, to achieve their potential in this field of communication arts.

Our classes offer these students the opportunity to practise and master techniques and skills necessary for this objective. This is taught through the exciting medium of play using drama, improvisation, poetry, choral speaking, puppets, reader’s theatre and story-telling in a group setting.

Our methodology and curriculum is customized according to the child’s development of communication skills and abilities in order to allow him or her to master confidence in communication and mindful expression of thought.
