Following on from our annual Feis in Celbridge Manor Hotel we are now focusing on preparing for Grade Examinations in February and working on our Christmas Presentations for families and friends. These presentations will be be held on 18/12, 19/12 and 20/12/19.
This is a great opportunity for parents to come and see some of the work students are doing in class. It is also an excellent opportunity for students to gain confidence in performing in front of an audience.
The excitement is building!
Orla Gildea believes in the power of Drama for self-confidence, creativity, fun and overall personal development. To this end Orla Gildea has been running her own school of Speech and Drama for the past sixteen years. Orla caters for children aged 5 to 20 years and students grouped by age.
Individual attention is given to each student and emphasis is placed on developing each child’s confidence, speech, fluency and participation. The classes focus on all aspects of Speech and Drama Studies (See Content of Classes Section). Irish Board of Speech and Drama Grade Examinations are held in the school once a year and a certificate is presented to each Student. Students also have opportunities to participate in Speech and Drama Festivals held during the year.
A Feis is run in November and class performances are held twice a year. This gives an opportunity for parents to see work carried out in the class. In this school special emphasis is placed on devised theatre and process drama. Student’s ideas are incorporated through the use of text, mime, movement, music and voice.
