The Helen O'Grady Drama Academy program serves 4 age groups
Kindy 3-5 years
The Kindy program empowers young children and their natural self through creative drama, working with children to build confidence, communication and interactive skills though drama techniques, for example: storytelling, improvisation, devised theatre and play, mime and dance and much more.
This curriculum runs throughout school terms in private studios and pre-schools. The sessions run for 45 minutes per class and parents stay or wait outside depending upon the age of the child and ratio of teacher and children. The sessions run set and seasonal themes throughout the year.
The lessons are structured and devised to allow creative development as we believe every child matters and drama is such a rewarding experience regardless of age. Children take from drama what they need and we work with the children to achieve whatever that may be, no matter what age they are.
Lower Primary 5-8 years
The Helen O'Grady developmental drama programme for Lower Primary provides young
children ages 5 to 8 with unique opportunities to develop clear speech, fluent delivery and
good social skills.
Our program helps to give them the confidence to be participants in all aspects of their lives, enabling them to ask questions, seek answers and share information with others. Children who mix well with others find it easier to make friends and adjust to new situations. They find school an enjoyable adventure!
The Academy's highly trained teachers motivate and inspire the students to become articulate communicators through enthusiastic participation in a wide range of creative activities including speech, creative movement, improvisation, and a special year-end
Upper primary 9-12 years
The confident, articulate child finds it easier to make friends, accept new challenges and explore new directions. The Helen O'Grady Drama Academy Upper Primary program for children ages 9-12 is designed to help each child achieve these invaluable life skills.
Students in our Upper Primary program participate in a wide range of creative activities including speech, dramatic movement, improvisation, snippets and scene starters.
At the end of each year they utilise all the skills acquired during the year to create a short,
scripted production, which is performed, for parents and friends.
In a fun-filled atmosphere, our classes aim to give young people ongoing confidence,
self-esteem and skill in verbal communication.

confidence and speaking ability, to those hoping to pursue a career in the theatre.
