JUNIOR SPEECH CLASS
The school places a huge emphasis on Speech Training (which used to be called Elocution) both for performance and everyday communication.
We are passionate about clear, expressive, speech and encourage students to speak well on all occasions. Work covers speaking in public, storytelling, poetry, reading Play texts, and grade examination for Trinity Guildhall & Feis Maitiu.
We introduce students to the great poets and dramatists, encouraging them to read their works. This ensures that when students are obliged to study these writers for their state exams, they will already be familiar with these works.
The course offers work on:
- Modulation (Variety in Speech)
- Clarity and Distinctness
The Children will work on:
Storytelling, Poetry Speaking & Writing, Reading Aloud, Speech & Communication Games.
They are also introduced to the art of Mime and work is prepared for grade examination in Speech and Drama and Feiseanna. These classes are also suitable for children with SPEECH PROBLEMS and LAZY SPEECH. A work book containing specially selected exercises and games is available at Junior level.
Class Ages: Junior 7 years upwards
