Speech and Drama

Speech (1).JPGSaint Kentigern students are great communicators and gain enormous benefit from their involvement in speechmaking and the dramatic arts. Each student prepares and performs at both the annual speech and poetry competition developing writing and delivery skills.

All classes from Year 1—8 enjoy a weekly speech and drama lesson as part of the core curriculum. The emphasis is on voice, poetry speaking and individual acting skills. Students wishing to have private lessons can attend either half hour lessons in small groups or have individual lessons. These are available for students in Year 4 and above and there is also an opportunity for students to sit Trinity College and New Zealand Speech Board examinations in a range of subjects, including speech and drama, public speaking, and group acting.
