speech and drama

The ability to confidently speak in front of an audience is a valuable life-long skill and takes time and practice to develop.

The Speech & Drama program at PLC Armidale is reknown for its comprehensive and confidence building program which is nurtured on a daily basis right from start in the foundation years of Junior School across many areas of the school curriculum. Girls are provided with lots of opportunities to practice across the school calendar.

Guild Drama, held on the final day of each school year, would have to be the most special day on the annual calendar. It involves girls from Kinder to Year 11, where each plays a role. From the creative script to the music, costumes and choreography, the twenty minute drama performance is all initiated and performed by the girls themselves.

Each year, students in Years 7-10 participate in the Middleton Public Speaking competition, as well as the statewide AHIGS Festival of Speech competition.

In 2015, PLC Armidale placed equal sixth out of the twenty-seven schools that participated in the festival, most coming from far larger schools. This was an outstanding result, and the highest team placing that PLC Armidale has achieved in recent years.

Lessons are offered to students in either small groups of 2-4 students, or private lessons.

Please contact the teacher directly for fees and lesson times.
