What is the purpose of the program?
Why Speak Up Studio?
Speak Up Studio is the largest extra-curricular drama school in Brisbane. We have a reputation for quality programs, attention to detail and a true love of what we do – helping children build confidence, develop a love of reading, and feel positive about speaking up.
What is the Speak Up School Program?
The Speak Up School Program is an ongoing, weekly Speech and Drama program designed to support student confidence and communication skills, and encourage a love of performing and public speaking. The program has been tailored to meet the needs of Brisbane primary school students and their families.
What are the benefits of offering a Speech and Drama program on site?
The benefits of improved confidence, communication skills and creativity start at school (in both the classroom and the playground) and continue throughout each child’s life. Children who participate in speech and drama learn how to speak in front of a group, and develop their social skills and confidence through activities that are such fun, they hardly notice they are learning. Check out our blog, Four reasons your school needs a speech and drama program for more details.
What kind of schools does Speak Up Studio work with?
We are so proud to say that we work with many different schools! From very large ones like Kelvin Grove State College, to private schools such as Redeemer Lutheran College, to state schools like Graceville State School, to small Catholic schools like Our Lady of Dolours Mitchelton. Each of these schools believe in our mission to inspire confidence, communication and creativity, and each of them provide just the right amount of support to ensure the long term success of their Speech and Drama program.
What does Speak Up do to support school communities?
Speak Up Studio values being part of our school communities, and is delighted to provide our services and expertise to support school events – Speak Up teachers often pop into Book Week or Under 8s Day celebrations to bring the joy of drama and stories to the wider school community. Speak Up also offers drama incursions for schools, which can be booked and paid for separately.
