STUDENTS of Maggie Prendiville's Castleisland-based speech and drama classes have collected a stack of certificates after exceeding expectations this year and achieving honours, first class honours and medals in their respective grades.
Ms Prendiville was delighted that all her student's hard work and effort was justifiably recognized by the Leinster School of Music and Drama.
Fear of speaking in public or among peers is something many people experience from an early age. Many of us are aware that such anxiety can stay long into adulthood if not challenged.
Speech and drama classes can overcome that by developing confidence, self-esteem and social skills. For the student, of course, the benefits are discreetly disguised in a fun environment of drama games.
Classes for the 2013/2014 are just beginning; contact Maggie Prendiville on 086 - 0527166 for further information.
