In today’s world, being able to express oneself and to speak well is of utmost importance. Speech and drama lessons equip children with invaluable lifelong skills that will see them through life’s challenges and demands!
The lessons encourage children to think critically, develop empathy , spur creativity and form views and opinions about the world around them.
Through participation in IJHCC’s Speech and Drama Programme students will learn to think critically, build self-confidence and self-esteem, gain mastery of their bodies and voice, develop empathy and form views about the world around them.
What We Do
As part of IJHCC’s efforts to support the holistic growth of children and enrich their learning journey, speech and drama classes are now offered on Saturdays at IJ Village. We believe that all children should be given the opportunity to quality and affordable enrichment programmes. Experienced and dedicated speech and drama teachers will ensure that the students have fun while learning. Students are encouraged to think and share their ideas and thoughts on a great variety of topics – from literature to current affairs. At the end of the course, students may opt to enter for the Trinity College of London, Speech and Drama and Communication Skills examinations. These certifications are recognised worldwide.
Each lesson will include one or more of the following:
- Speech and voice work (aids in sight reading and pronunciation)
- Breathing and posture (helps improve public speaking)
- Communication skills (supports critical thinking, written, and verbal proficiencies)
- Stage discipline and character building (teaches collaboration and the intrinsic value of producing high quality work)
- Verbal and non-verbal communication (understanding body language)
