We are very excited to announce our own Speech and Drama Feis in Dundrum!
The Feis Maitiu competition typically takes place in the second week of May each year. Due to unforeseen circumstance, it has been cancelled. We hope that it will be back up and running next year.
In lieu, we are offering our own smaller version of the Feis on the week of May 8th-12th in Taney Parish Centre Dundrum. We have organised the competitions for each age group to occur on the same day so that there will be minimal school missed. However, typically the Feis Maitiu is spread over multiple days so this is something to keep in mind for future events.
The competition is a nice opportunity for students of the same age group from each of our venues in Rathmines, Dundrum, Dun Laoghaire and Castleknock to gather in the same place. They can view the performance material that their peers have been working on for the past few months. As well, for those students who will be going on to complete exams, it will be great to get some feedback from an external adjudicator about their performance material. Finally, this is a great opportunity for the students to practice performing in front of others as a group, as well as individually. We have found that taking part in these events ourselves as children have immensely helped our ability to speak in public with comfort. Parents and families are welcome to come to the events to watch the performances and we hope it will be a great day out! There is no cost for participation so please feel free to enrol in as many competitions as you’d like, however we have limited spaces available in the solo competitions so please only enrol if you know you will be free to attend.
Please respond to our email to sign up for the Feis, or use the contact us form on the website to get in touch.
** Note that age category entered should be based on the age the student was on January 1st 2023.
