School of Voice and Drama workshops are designed to be fun and positive experiences whilst covering a range of dynamic speaking and dramatic skills – including public speaking, debating, presenting to camera, poetry and prose speaking, prepared and sight reading, Bible reading, vocal expressiveness, mime, improvisation and scripted drama. Workshops run from mid February to November. There is the opportunity to gain qualifications in Communication Skills and Public Speaking, or Theatre Skills (SpeechNZ and Trinity College). These can be sat in pairs, groups, or as individuals. Diploma studies (university level) are offered in year 13. Exam fees are extra costs. We aim to showcase the learning in a Parent Showcase at least once a year. 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. There is no doubt that having a confident, expressive and artistic voice is an asset in today’s world.
