The Helen O’Grady Children’s Drama Academy was founded in Perth, Australia in 1979. Since 1997, the Singapore franchise has offered the Helen O’Grady Drama Programme to over 120 schools, training over 4,500 students in Singapore.
“Success comes easier to those who have the ability to speak clearly and confidently”. We at Helen O’Grady believe it is the “magic” of drama that will make a dramatic difference in the lives of students. We believe that the effective use of drama can help students develop confidence, creativity, social and communication skills.
Ava attends The Capstone Kindergarten which, as part of their curriculum, incorporates weekly sessions by professional speech & drama teachers from Helen O’Grady. Teacher Vera’s quick and expert guidance on voice tonality and valuable ideas on body and movement helped Ava to prepare in time for the finals. More importantly, Ava has grown to enjoy public speaking through the positive experience she’s had with Teacher Vera.
It’s incredible how Teacher Cheryl manages to teach the kids to learn their lines every week in less than an hour! Her dedication and passion as an educator are personified through the laughter, enthusiasm and pure joy our son shows in S&D. It is indeed a rarity in our education system to have such dedicated teachers and we are honored to have met one such rare gem! Kudos to an amazing teacher!
I want to thank your great staff for a job well done! The kids did wonderfully well for both English and Chinese Speech & Drama. Your teachers did great for the year as the kids enjoyed their classes every Thursday.
