I came along to the assembly performance today and thought the children did really well. Sophie really enjoyed it too and she was practising it with us over the weekend. I can tell by her smile that she is really happy and proud of herself which is great because she is normally incredibly shy in front of groups.
Anyway, I just wanted to say a quick thanks!
We see Zoe utilising her speech and drama skills in many facets of life, particularly in her school oral presentations. It is great to see her joy as she thinks of different ways to present her news topic each week rather than the standard PowerPoint and palm cards. The other week, she received a standing ovation from her peers and teacher for her creative presentation on the Australian pioneer Caroline Chisholm.
Thank you for the passion you share with her each week.
Claire started speak up part way through year three. We wanted Claire to become more confident with speaking in front of groups, Claire was initially very shy and withdrawn and after just two terms Claire was participating confidently in the Speak Up end of year concert. This year Claire joined another Speak Up student in a duo eisteddfod and achieved success. The program has helped Claire to find her voice and develop the confidence to unlock her creativity and joy of performing along with enhancing her ability to communicate.
Thank you so much for all your help with our daughter! We are so happy with her progress and her confidence. You’re all so professional and supportive. Very much appreciated.
It has been a wonderful year with you, for our family! Thank you for continually encouraging my son to come out of his shell more and to get him into group classes and the concert!
You’ve put in a tremendous amount of work for the children individually and collectively! We wish you a lovely holiday. My daughter is obviously progressing well, and I can certainly see the fruit of her lessons when she prepares and practices class orals now. Thank you!
I meant to thank you for all of your hard work putting on the concert last Saturday. It was an absolutely fabulous experience for the kids. Look forward to seeing you next year!
I’d just like to congratulate you on how fabulous the concert was. I love that my kids can be exposed to all the bubbling creativity that Speak Up runs on whilst gaining some very valuable skills for life.
Congratulations Cathy – they were all gorgeous today. What a credit to you and the other teachers. The costumes and sets were fantastic. Well done – absolutely beautiful. Have a wonderful holiday.
