All students from Years 1 to 12 are invited to participate in individual or small group lessons in drama, effective communication and presentation skills. These private lessons occur during School days in a similar fashion to individual instrumental music tuition.

The Speech Program

The program is designed to develop a student's individual communication skills and performance techniques. The skills of oracy (reading, listening and speaking) are emphasised to enable students to develop clarity and confidence in all areas of oral communication: verse speaking, reading aloud, acting, improvisation and public speaking.

Emphasis is placed on correct breathing for speech, clear enunciation and voice production. Students are encouraged to develop an appreciation of good literature and an awareness of the strength and beauty of the spoken word.

Students present their work at soirees and are also encouraged to enter various State festivals and competitions. Over the years, Korowa students have achieved success in many competitions.

Students can also choose to undertake the International Speech and Drama examinations of Trinity - Guildhall, London in which Korowa students enjoy considerable success.

Drama Workshops

Drama Workshops are also offered to students in Years 1 to 6 as an after School activity. The aims of the Drama Workshops are for students to learn dramatic skills, develop self-awareness and self-confidence, improve communication abilities and to have fun and explore creativity in a supportive environment.
