Drama school teaches children life skills as well as star turns If you want your child to be confident and able to communicate easily the Helen O Grady Drama Academy is the place to be. It provides children with a self-development programme designed to increase confidence, self- esteem, communicative ability and creative talents through a care- fully constructed, pro- gressive drama syllabus. Helen O Grady Drama Academy started in Auckland in 1992. Prin- cipal Joy Thompson says, I adore this work. Watching children learn to express themselves clearly and blossom into the stars they are is a wonderful thing. As a primary trained teacher, having teaching experience with five to 17 year olds, Joy recog- nises the important part that drama plays in dev- eloping strong life-skills; good communication skills, and creative ways to articulate. Our students are con- fident participants in life, having fun and dev- eloping important life skills, she says. The curriculum is designed to stimulate language development. The children learn speaking skills including volume control and expression; presentation skills, and how to handle competition and interpersonal relation- ships with their peers. The theatre arts part of the programme includes learning improvisation, working with scripts and creating characters. The year culminates in each child performing in an end of year play -- concrete evi- dence of their skills. New Zealander Helen O Grady started the Drama Academy back in 1979, in Perth. With a passion for drama, she noted how children sig- nificantly benefited from drama exercises, with social confidence and genuine self esteem. Pro- viding children with per- sonal development through drama classes became her life s work. In 2003, her work was recognised by London s Trinity College. She was awarded an Honorary Fellowship (FTCL). Trinity College pro- fessor for arts and edu- cation and chief exam- iner for speech and drama subjects Ken Pickering wrote: The programme of work undertaken by Helen O Grady and her schools throughout the world has made a significant contribution to the cre- ative use of drama as a development tool. Trinity is delighted to celebrate this achievement. For more details phone the principal Joy Thomson on 444-7457. www.helenogrady.co.nz.
