Speech & Drama Competition

The Speech & Drama section is aimed at children from 5 years upward, for expansion in this area of the performing arts. It gives them an opportunity for recitation, acting and public speaking in front of an audience in a friendly environment.

Encouragement awards, cash prizes and trophies are awarded, plus an adjudication report of their performance.With this added confidence they are better able to pursue their interest in the performing arts.
