 Below is some information about Helen O'Grady Drama Academy

The Helen O'Grady Drama Academy was founded in Australia in 1979 and is now available in over 27 countries worldwide with over 50,000 students.  Helen O’Grady Drama develops their speech (articulation & projection), body awareness- all while learning English.  It is a literacy enrichment program taught through Drama.

Purpose of Helen O’Grady Drama Program
The purpose of the Helen O'Grady Drama System is to involve our students in a highly stimulating, creative, theatre arts program, designed to develop:

1. Enthusiasm and a positive approach to life.
2. Ongoing confidence.
3. Self esteem.
4. Skill in verbal communication.
5. Effective social interaction.

Curriculum System of program
Every year we have a different syllabus so your child never repeats a lesson...
For your child to learn the skills for life it does take time. We recommend you stay with Helen O Grady for 2 years.  This way the techniques are installed in them, their whole personality will be stronger and their communication skills will have been improved so much it will never go away.

The curriculum material in each lesson covers:

Objectives of learning  from Pre School (age  4-5) to Lower Primary (age 6-8) and Upper primary (age 9-12) and Learning Outcomes for Youth Theatre (age 13-17) are:

Drama is an active learning process- faster and more fluid.  In Drama they learn how to say the words with expression and emotion. Clear and confident communication is an important skill in our world today.   Drama allows students to learn through role-play which is a more natural and effective way of learning.

Your child will develop their language and speech skills through Creative Drama.
