Speech and Drama workshops are offered after school on Thursday afternoons - numbers are limited. 

The workshops are designed to be fun and positive experiences whilst covering a range of speaking and dramatic skills - including public speaking, debating, poetry and prose speaking, prepared and sight reading, Bible reading, vocal expressiveness, mime, improvisation and scripted drama. Workshops run from March to November. 

Students gain confidence in expressing and presenting themselves well, develop vocal expressiveness and clarity of voice, integrity and respect, memory training, teamwork, co-operation, perseverance, diligence, tolerance and judgement.
