"Surely we have always acted; it is an instinct inherent in all of us. Some of us are better at it than others, but we all do it." Laurence Olivier
Speaking with confidence and listening with true understanding are life skills which display and celebrate your child’s individuality. St. Hilda’s actively promote and encourage a confident communication style through our drama activities.
In drama lessons, pupils create improvisations and plays which they perform to each other and the school. All the Lower School pupils take part in the Christmas play and every child in the Upper School gain parts in the end of year production. Drama assemblies linked to subjects, joining the drama club, writing,directing and filming their own stories, putting on a theatre production and the opportunity to take the English Speaking Board examinations from Form 2 onwards mean that a St. Hilda’s girl is a confident articulate and imaginative communicator from a very young age.
