MAGGIE Prendiville and the Leinster School of Music and Drama proudly presented their Castleisland students with their Speech and Drama exam results on Wednesday last. Ms. Prendiville would like to congratulate all her students who excelled in this year's examinations receiving no less than first class honours.
Notably, both Mary Healy from Clogher and Fia Lawless from Castleisland are commended in achieving first class honours and a medal.
Speech & Drama classes aim to build students' confidence and self esteem through drama, to promote an enjoyment of language in all its forms, to produce students who are vocally and physically expressive, whose speech is clear, colourful and individual, to help each student's personal development and ability to communicate with sensitivity, to build command of standard English and the language needed to support it, to instill an understanding of communication as a two-way process and promote and foster an enjoyment of reading.
"Activities in our Speech & Drama classes include: sharing and presenting news, information and ideas; physical, vocal and mental warmups; story, book and poem sharing; language dynamics; voice, speech and pronunciation exercises; exploring poetry; communication skills and creative drama and improvisation," said Ms. Prendiville.
